100% dried peppermint leaves from the world's finest peppermint plants

FLAVOR PROFILE
Peppermint is not just for holiday candies and treats. Real peppermint has been used for thousands of years for its pleasant, minty taste and health benefits. Our Peppermint Willamette is sourced from the Willamette Valley in Oregon and believed to be the best mint in the world for its exceptionally clean, sharp and minty character.

According to nutritionists and natural health practitioners, peppermint tea can aid digestion, soothe the mind and ease destructive inflammation in the body. Making it one powerful and pleasing cup!

BENEFITS
As a Fruit & Herb Tisane, Peppermint Willamette is naturally caffeine-free.

Peppermint has been used for centuries to ease digestive discomfort and soothe cold and flu symptoms by reducing nasal and sinus congestion. Peppermint is also thought to relieve tension headaches and migraines. Recent studies have shown that peppermint is high in disease-fighting antioxidants, possesses antibacterial and antiviral properties and may help increase mental alertness and enhance memory.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS
Peppermint Willamette Fruit & Herb can be enjoyed hot or iced, sweetened with sugar, honey or other sweeteners.

PREPARATION
Traditional Hot Tea

Measure one to two heaping teaspoon of tea leaves per one cup water into a tea filter or into an infuser of your choice. Keep in mind, the infuser you choose must be large enough to allow the tea leaves to swell and unfurl. This allows the tea leaves to release their full flavor. Place filter into teapot or mug. Bring filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil then pour into teapot or mug. Infuse 3-5 minutes. Remove the filter and discard or remove infuser and discard tea leaves. Garnish as desired with sugar, honey, sweetener and/or lemon slices.

Iced Tea
Measure six heaping teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Bring 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil. Immediately pour boiled water over filter into teapot or heat-resistant pitcher. Infuse 3-5 minutes. Remove filter and sweeten tea with ½ cup sugar if desired. Add 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a serving pitcher. Pour in prepared tea and mix well. Add 2 cups ice and stir. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

Cold-infusion Method
Measure four teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place inside a clean glass jar or small pitcher. Position filter so that the tea leaves will be submerged and the top hangs over the side of the jar or pitcher so that leaves do not spill out once water is added. Pour four cups of filtered or freshly drawn water over the filter. Cover with lid or plastic wrap. Refrigerate and infuse up to 24 hours. Always keep cold-infused tea refrigerated for food-safety. To serve warm, simply pour the tea into a small saucepan and warm as desired.

*Cold-infused tea has higher levels of antioxidants. To serve hot, simply pour the cold-infused tisane into a saucepan over medium heat and gently warm to desired temperature.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Store Peppermint Willamette in a cool, dark place away from direct light. If stored properly, this tisane will stay fresh for up to two years.
