11 Amazing Benefits of Drinking Peppermint Tea

Cool and chill, peppermint tea is a crowd-pleaser for good reason. It’s refreshing, making drinking it on warm and cold days equally perfect. It’s also widely available. Getting it at your local tea shop is as easy as 123. Cafes will often have a steady supply, too. So ordering a cup of tea while your friends drink their java will be no trouble at all.

Here, we’ll talk about the health benefits of peppermint tea as well as other fun things about it. What are we waiting for then? Let’s get to it! 

Unclog Your Sinuses

This one is easy to wrap our heads around. If you think about peppermint tea, you think about how it has a cooling or somewhat menthol-y aftertaste. Generally, people drink tea to help clear their sinuses. This makes peppermint tea extra helpful - more than the other teas, we think!

If you’ve got a cold and a rather stuffy nose, brew yourself some peppermint tea at home to help you rest better. 

Freshen Your Breath

We’d be remiss if we didn't mention that peppermint tea can help you freshen your breath. This makes sense! Peppermint candies are often eaten to instantly give you better-smelling breath. While those candies disappear in your mouth quickly, peppermint tea can be enjoyed for longer. 

Here’s a fun little tip. After a great date, why not have a cup of freshly brewed peppermint tea as your nightcap? Nothing’s worse than a stinky smooch!

Toot Sweet Relief

We’re surprised to learn that folks drink peppermint tea for gas relief! This one really depends on the person as there are not a lot of studies backing this up. In this case, drinking peppermint tea really falls under the category of home remedies. It can work for some, but sometimes it won’t for others.

Either way, people with bouts of belly trouble can still enjoy a delicious cup of peppermint tea regardless!

Peppermint Tea For Sleep

We mentioned drinking peppermint tea as a nightcap earlier, and it’s a really great idea! Drinking peppermint tea, like a lot of other tea, can provide soothing and calming effects. Plus, peppermint tea is naturally caffeine-free, so it won't give you a sudden jolt of energy right when you’re starting to fall asleep.

Drinking peppermint tea can help you relax! In addition to being a tasty drink, the aroma of it can help with the overall ambience and really help you fall asleep.

Cough Relief

What are the benefits of peppermint tea? Why, it can provide some much-needed cough relief. The same cooling and minty effects of it can help you with coughing. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it’s a warm beverage - which is often what people use to remedy intense coughing. 

Again, this falls under the spectrum of natural remedies. It can work for some, but sometimes it won’t work for a few. Still, every little bit of help is welcome especially when you’re just trying to get better.

Hot Weather Refreshment

We know we’ve been talking about the health benefits of peppermint tea more. So, let’s take a little break from all of that! Peppermint tea is delicious hot or cold. During the intense heat of the summer, why not serve your tea on ice? We recommend using less water to brew to make a stronger “concentrate” that you can pour over ice. The tea will melt the ice just enough so that it tastes just right.

To give it a little zhuzh, add a few slices of oranges to your iced peppermint tea. An addition of a few watermelon cubes and some honey will really cool you off!

It’s Hydrating

peppermint tea is hydrating

We get it. Some of us really struggle to stay hydrated throughout the day. We understand the want to drink something tastier than plain old water. Peppermint tea can be a wonderful beverage to try. Sodas are often sweet. Coffee is great, but drinking our 4th or 5th cup before 3 pm might give us the ability to see smells!

Tea, more specifically peppermint tea, has that flavour and aroma to make it more enjoyable to drink. Plus, it’s like natural hydration - it’s just water and tea leaves! Way better than those artificially flavoured beverages, right?

Battle of the Bloat

Fight bloating and indigestion naturally with the help of peppermint! There have been certain cases when peppermint oil was used to give relief to IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). The oil is said to relax the muscles in your digestive system. 

We understand that peppermint oil isn’t exactly peppermint tea, but it may have the same effects!

Fight Headaches

peppermint tea best for headaches

Head hurty? Why not try some peppermint tea? There are a lot of over-the-counter products and peppermint oil-infused remedies that tout migraine-relieving benefits. More often than not, these are topical ointments - and there are some studies that prove that they can be helpful as a headache remedy. That’s all thanks to the peppermint oil.

We certainly don’t recommend you go out and drink peppermint oils by the glassful - but there is a way around that! Go get some peppermint tea!

Destress With Tea

One of the often unsaid benefits of peppermint tea is that brewing it can be a great way of destressing or unwinding. This routine is similar to watering plants, doing the dishes, or doing the laundry. These certain tasks allow us to just get away or get a break from all the hubbubs around us. 

When everything gets… too much, brewing tea can be a relaxing way to just focus on one thing at a time. And you get a delicious cup of tea after all that… What a nice little bonus!

Rich in Antioxidants

Last, but certainly not least, another wonderful health benefit of peppermint tea is that it contains antioxidants. A particular antioxidant called flavonoid is said to protect your body from cell damage.

Caffeine-free and all-natural, what better way to get some wonderful antioxidants in than by drinking some peppermint tea?

It’s Tea Time!

Now that you’ve got a good grasp of what the benefits of peppermint tea are, we bet you want to get some right about now. So, head on over to Portfolio Coffee where we have more than coffee beans - we’ve got a lot of tea leaves and the tools you need to make a fabulous brew at home!
