Organic Peppermint for Flavoring

 

Peppermint is perhaps the most popular herbs used today. It’s a perennial herb, growing profusely in summer, in fact it may take over your garden!   It’s actually a hybrid of spearmint and watermint, and it’s use dates back to Egyptian writings in 1550 BC calling for mint to calm stomach pains. It's also great for battling candida and cancer cells and is an excellent source of vitamins A & C. The methol in peppermint mellows some of Kombucha's bite and leaves a cool sensation.

 

It was so useful back then, it was also used as a form of currency.

 


Did you know that the US produces about half the world's peppermint, the majority is grown in Michigan? And that just one pound of peppermint will flavor over 135,000 pieces of gum!

 


Over the years, Peppermint’s value as a flavoring and remedy have grown. It’s a favorite flavoring for Christmas candy, gum, candy, liquor and toothpaste. As a popular tea, it’s taste is cooling and refreshing.

 


Traditional healers reach for this remedy to soothe tension headaches, nausea, stomach upsets, bad breath, heartburn, hiccups and indigestion.

I really enjoy Yogi Tea's Egyption Licorice Mint tea. So, I used this to try to make a kombucha version of that. What I got was so much more fun. I used a peppermint and liccorice root combination as a tisane for the second ferment. Drinking it reminds me of the chewing gum from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory that changes flavor.
At first, the taste is 100% kombucha, then after a couple seconds it is sweet licorice root, another few seconds later there is a blast of mint. I've never experienced anything like it.
