Peppermint is a hybrid plant originally native to Asia and Europe that now occurs naturally in North America.

The dried leaves and stems, which contain a high degree of volatile oil called menthol, lend a fresh, minty taste to tea blends. The dried herb can also be used to make infused oils and tinctures for use in cosmetics and perfumery.
