Brisk and healthy
Another great tea option from Sydney Tea, we have the classic certified premium Organic Peppermint. From its uplifting aroma akin to mountain air, to its deep and exciting flavor that can also boost our health, Sydney Tea's peppermint comes in two versions - the classic peppermint and a charming blend of peppermint with chamomile. Let's check out some more details about the peppermint leaf and its ancient origins!
From pharaohs to Pharmacopoeias
Peppermint's use as a medicinal ingredient goes back to ancient Egypt. That's right! some "mummified" (they were just dried) peppermint leaves have been found in Egyptian pyramids that go back to around 1000 B.C. In the time of the pharaohs, peppermint was utilised as an aid to indigestion. This knowledge then passed to the classical civilisations of the Mediterranean where the Greeks and Romans both used peppermint to ease stomach pain. Eventually, peppermint as a remedy became more widespread in other parts of Europe where it was called upon to treat all manner of stomach and digestion problems including nausea, vomiting, morning sickness and even respiratory infections. Today, peppermint is even listed in the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia where it is said to help soothe intestinal problems, gas, morning sickness, menstrual cramps and even colds.
But what makes it so healthy?
But now how much does modern research verify some of these antiquated claims of peppermint's role as a health remedy? Well, for starters, some studies have backed up peppermint when it comes to its use as a digestive aid and treatment for digestive problems. Gas, bloating and indigestion can be alleviated by peppermint. Peppermint oil can help to relax muscles in our digestive systems and help our bodies digest more efficiently. Now as for that cool, refreshing, brisk feeling from enjoying peppermint's sharp taste and scent? That has been tied to possibly helping to relieve both headaches and migraines. Have you ever wondered why so much toothpaste has that wintry peppermint flavor? Well it appears that the oils in peppermint help to kill bacteria in our mouths that can result in dragon breath. So, while a nice cup of coffee can result in some less than nice breath afterwards, when you finish a cup of peppermint tea on the other hand, your breath will be as fresh as the alpine air! And speaking of breathing fresh and deep, peppermint can also potentially help unstuff that stuffy nose. So when you enjoy your peppermint tea, make sure to inhale that herbal vapor and steam that rises from your cup, too. Menstrual cramps may be soothed by peppermint which can aid in weakening the strength of cramps. Peppermint tea has beneficial properties when it comes to other types of muscle cramps, too. And while peppermint may improve our energy levels and concentration, it can also help to assist us in getting some sleep. This makes peppermint tea a safe and wise choice for a before bed or after dinner beverage to enjoy. So during dessert, maybe opt out of coffee or green tea, or even alcohol and choose peppermint tea instead. But what's one more great reason to brew up a mug or whole pot of peppermint tea? Peppermint may assist in weight loss, too! This one goes hand-in-hand with peppermint as a great dessert tea, because peppermint may help to satiate a sweet tooth and keep us from indulging in too much cake or sweets before bed.
