Whether you are using a tea bag or one of our Loose Leaf Pyramids, ensure you pour freshly boiled water in the cup or pot and allow the tea to steep for around 3 minutes. For a more intense taste let it stew for a while longer.
If you are using fresh mint leaves or loose leaf peppermint tea, pop the leaves into a pot - a generous handful of chopped up fresh mint per person, or a heaped teaspoon per person if using dried loose leaf tea. Pour of the boiling water and again, allow to steep for just a little longer (up to five minutes) for the tea to fully infuse, and the water to pick up the minty fresh flavours.
Twinings have a delicious range of organic Peppermint tea and Spearmint tea as well as delicious mint tea blends. Green tea and mint go extremely well together for instance as the vegetal flavours really compliment each other. You can also combine peppermint with traditional black teas. So… What’s your favourite mint tea?
