Tea of the Day!

Peppermint: 3/5

If you've had one peppermint tea, you've had them all. Nice minty (obviously) taste. Very refreshing when chilled. Wonderful for getting rid of those small annoying headaches, both as a hot drink with minty steam and as an ice cool jolt of minty freshness. Some people claim that you can add it to a cup of hot chocolate and have Hot Mint-Chocolate, but I have yet to get it right. So far, sticking a bag of peppermint in hot chocolate is not the way to go, as it ends up tasting rather awful. If anyone has any suggestions on this front, do please share!

Extra: The finest tea comes from elevations of 3,000 to 7,000 feet. The plant grows more slowly in cool air, adding to its flavor.
