About Black Tea with Mint

Black tea with mint is a common form of flavored tea.

The mint can be dried and mixed with the tea leaves before brewing, and many teas are packaged and sold in this form. Alternatively, the essential oil of the mint can be used to flavor the tea leaves before packaging. Or, either dried or fresh mint leaves can be mixed with the tea at the time of brewing.

Because black tea and mint tea are usually both brewed with water near the boiling point, mint and black tea are easier to brew together than blends of mint with more delicate green teas.

Many varieties of mint exist; the most popular to use is spearmint, although other popular mints used include apple mint, peppermint, and orange mint.

Health benefits of blending black tea with mint:

Tea is known to inhibit iron absorption; mint, however, enhances iron absorption and can offset the inhibitory effect of the tea.[1]
