Mint Tea

Ancient Egyptians enjoyed a cup of peppermint tea, as evidenced by the leaves found in the pyramids of Egypt, so whilst not as old as tea drinking, mint “tea” has a long heritage. 


Later, both Romans and Greeks recognised its medical benefits, chiefly as a digestive aid, and later it was an essential accompaniment on the long voyages of the pioneering East India Company sailors.
