Both fresh and dried peppermint find culinary application, particularly in herbal tea, due to its cooling effect and diverse medicinal properties.
Since ancient Roman times, peppermint has been cherished for its advantageous attributes. While it’s commonly distilled for its volatile oils, peppermint leaf remains a staple in home gardens and herbal medicine. With a legacy rooted in traditional healing, it is a tonic to promote digestive well-being and uplifts with its refreshing aroma.
