Botany and History of Peppermint Tea Bags

Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is an aromatic, rhizomatous, perennial plant of the Lamiaceae family. It is a natural hybrid of watermint (Mentha aquatica) and spearmint (Mentha spicata). Growing to heights between 30 and 90 centimetres (12-35 inches), it is native to Europe and the Middle East but thrives in various climates. The essential oils Menthol, menthone and menthyl acetate contribute to its flavour.

Meanwhile, its mythical origins started in Ancient Greece. According to legend, Hades, God of the underworld, first created it. The tale is that he seduced a nymph called Minthe while travelling on his golden chariot near the Cocytus River. When Hades' wife Persephone heard of the encounter, she became enraged. She subsequently turned Minthe into a plant that people would constantly walk on.

Hades, saddened by his wife’s interference, imbued the plant with what we today know as Peppermint Tea. He did so in order that whenever someone crushed it underfoot, it would release a wonderful aroma. Several versions of this story exist - none, perhaps unsurprisingly, have any historical basis. However, there is archaeological evidence of its use found in the Giza Pyramids, Egypt, dating back to 1,000 BCE. 

Does Peppermint Tea Bags Have Caffeine?

Few people would argue that the infusion’s essential oils play a considerable role in its character and charm. But what about everyone’s favourite stimulating chemical compound? We’re talking about caffeine, which provides an energy boost upon consumption. While none exists in Peppermint Tea Bags, the flipside is that it is a suitable choice of Tea before bed. And that’s not all on offer.
