If you've fallen in love with Peppermint (Mentha piperita), you're in good company, figuratively speaking. According to a myth from Ancient Greece, this cool herb gets its name from the nymph Menthe. So beautiful was Menthe that the god Pluto fell in love with her on sight. Naturally, this didn't thrill his wife Persephone, who turned Menthe into a plant, so that she would be trod upon for the rest of time. Distraught, Pluto tried to reverse the spell but found he could not. What he could do however was infuse Menthe, (the plant version) with the sweet aroma we all know and love.
HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teabag for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
