This blend is equal parts of Catmint, Spearmint and Peppermint. It's really quite simple. The tiny teabags you get in the store are mediocre at best. You don't really realize how different they are until you grow your own and use it in your own teas. I use 1/2 cup, 1/2 cup and 1/2 cup to make this tea.
- Catmint has antibiotic properties and is traditionally used to treat colds and flu. It helps reduce fevers and calms stomach upset.
- Spearmint has compounds that relieve fatigue and stress.
- Peppermint contains high levels of menthol. Traditionally it has been used to soothe nausea, abdominal pain, indigestion and irritable bowel.
