A native of the Mediterranean, peppermint leaves were often used to crown luminaries in ancient Greece and Rome. It continues to be revered for its cooling, crisp aroma, deeply refreshing flavor, and smooth finish. If you have yet to try gourmet peppermint tea, made from just pure peppermint (no added oils or sweeteners), you'll be pleasantly surprised by its superior flavor.

Peppermint is one of the world’s most popular kinds of mint. Like all mint plants, it features sturdy vine-like stems and serrated leaves. The leaves also contain menthol, which causes a distinctive cooling sensation on the skin and palate. For this reason, mint has become popular in anything from candies, ice creams, and liquors to breath mints, toothpastes, and gum. Peppermint has long been used in traditional medicine for treating minor pains and stomach issues. Though it was originally described as a distinct species in 1753, scientists have since agreed that it is actually a hybrid between watermint and spearmint.
