These peppermint leaves are a product of the Willamette Valley in Washington State. The climate and soil combination there gives this peppermint its pungent aroma and strong flavor. Many people drink a cup of peppermint tea after dinner to aid in digestion. It may also be used as an addition to black teas and other herbals such as chamomile, to brighten their flavor. Enjoy! 1 ounce = approximately 15 tsps.
