Why peppermint tea?

peppermint teaI’ve mentioned peppermint tea and how much better I feel after drinking it in one of my previous posts. But why do I rave on about it so much? What’s actually good about it and are there actually any benefits to drinking it? Of course there are!

It improves your digestion

It aids in moving gas through your body as it accumulates which would otherwise cause bloating, cramping and general discomfort. This tea also stimulates bile flow to increase the rate and efficiency of digestion and promote healthy bowel movements.

Boosts immunity

Peppermint tea has antibacterial properties to fight against bacteria that causes illnesses such as cold and flu.

Removes bad breath

If you have terrible morning breath then peppermint tea may be the thing for you! Due to its strong, menthol flavor and its antibacterial properties, the germs are killed and the smell is overwhelmed by the menthol flavor!

Reduces stress levels

The natural sedative or antispasmodic nature of menthol helps you get instant relief from mental stress. The anti-inflammatory nature of peppermint tea can reduce your blood pressure and body temperature, which allows you to unwind and relax and letting your stress melt away.

It tastes delicious!

As I mentioned before, peppermint tea has got a strong menthol flavor which works very well with me as I absolutely love mint!

If you love mint as much as I do, or have bowel issues or just need to relax then why not try a peppermint tea? Thanks for reading 🙂

Try peppermint tea for yourself!!

  1. Hey I actually love peppermint tea. I drink several cups a day. It’s so refreshing and I have been doing this ever since I was a small child so it’s become a habit. I am actually drinking one right now. Haha.

  2. I used to drink it all the time, but for some reason, it started giving me hot flashes at night. I stopped drinking it a night, and the hot flashes stopped. I have no idea why it did that, but I haven’t had any in years, and I miss it! It does taste good. 🙂

  3. Hello, Georgia 🙂 I actually found your blog after you liked a post I made earlier… Thank you for that!
    About the peppermint tea… I really don’t like tea at all, but I found a very refreshing summer recipe last year and it became my daily routine (at least for the summer). So it’s a kind of home made lemonade with fresh leaves of peppermint inside, lemon juice, slices of lemon, honey and mineral water. I keep a jug of it in the fridge and it’s very delicious 😀 So, if you’re interested, you could try it. It also boosts the immune system, refreshes you and brightens your mood 🙂

  4. We drink a lot of peppermint tea at home as I am allergic to caffeine. It is both warming and reviving I find! Thanks for sharing! I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s poem features a blackbird in case you have time to look? Have a relaxing weekend, Sam 🙂
