But what do you need to know about Peppermint? Botanically known as Mentha piperita, peppermint is an aromatic, rhizomatous, perennial plant capable of growing to heights of 30-90 centimetres (12-35 inches). It consists of light, purple flowers and green leaves with serrated edges. Arguably most interesting of all, however, is the truly fascinating fact that the plant is a hybrid of water mint (Mentha aquatica) and spearmint (Mentha spicata).
Peppermint was originally native to Europe and the middle-east but can now be found growing across the world. It is an extraordinarily versatile plant, one able to flourish in many different climates. In countries such as Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Ecuador, specifically the Galapagos Islands, respective governments categorise peppermint as an “invasive” plant.
Harvesting takes place shortly before the plant blooms, which occurs in the summer (usually from June to August). Dry, sunny weather is the preferred climate to ensure the leaf is of the best possible quality. According to some sources, the United States is the world’s largest producer of peppermint, accounting for an estimated 75% of global peppermint trade. The peppermint used in the making of our Peppermint Pyramid Tea Bags, meanwhile, comes from Poland.
