{USEFUL TIP: Peppermint Tea for Anti Bloating}


  • When living in The Netherlands, our back neighbors were from Turkey and I learned quite a lot from their culture. 
  • They passed on age old remedies for certain ailments. One of them was, serving hot tea from fresh Mentha Piperita leaves. 
  • Sure I learned about this USEFULL TIP as Peppermint Tea for Anti Bloating. 
  • Since than, I've been drinking this soothing Peppermint Tea for decades, adding also some healthy Green Tea as well. 
  • We always keep mint growing in our garden. So how do I brew this useful tea? Let me show you...
  • Freshly brewn inside our Mandalay Chartreuse by Mason's teapot.

  • With my Gardena Garden Scissors I did snip off a handful of Mentha Piperita leaves from our garden.

  • Rinsing them off in my Rösle Strainer...

  • Together with a bag of green tea they go inside the teapot while the water is boiling.
  • Pour the water over it and let it steep for a few minutes before pouring into your cups.

  • I used Trader Joe's Organic Green Tea...

  • Peppermint-Green-Tea with a healthy chocolate dessert, decorated with edible marzipan rosebuds...
  • Why don't you sit with me?

  • Closeup from the Peppermint-Green-Tea and my dessert...

  • Please sit down and join me...!
  • By  the way, this amazing chocolate dessert came out of the freezer and works great for freezing it!
  • Below the post you find the recipe for this diabetes type 2 and heart healthy 0% cholesterol chocolate dessert.

  • This is a very soothing and relaxing tea, you ought to try it for yourself!

  • No, I did NOT add any sugar...
  • So what do you think? Are you going to try this out as well...?

Below are some links for more info.

  1. Dearest Mariette,
    I learned about the medicinal properties of the mint from my grandmother. She always fixed us a pot of mint tea when we had any kind of stomach problems. I always keep bags of "green tea and mint" which I find quite convenient to buy already mixed. Having your own garden it's such a delightful thing, and your tea setting is rather glamourous.

    Blessings to you and Pieter!

  11. I love peppermint tea and I can only imagine how delicious it must be with home grown, freshly cut mint! I suffer from horrible bloating, I'll have to try this!

    Growing up, my mom always made lamb with mint sauce...I didn't care for the lamb but I love English mint sauce!

  12. My dear friend Mariette,
    Thanks for visiting my blogs, and also for your kind words for my daughter who has left home. Your post reminds me the days she spent with us, because we also grow peppermint, and we drank iced peppermint tea with lemon (no sugar either). But for sure I have to try it like you do. You look so beautiful and so happy, it seems you are having a great day, enjoying that yummy desert and drinking tea. I also love the way you set the table and the china, very elegant.
    Send you a big hug, with lots of love
    Laura :0)

  13. Danke für die Einladung zum Tee, liebe Mariette!
    Ich habe auch einige Minze-Sorten im Garten und außerdem Zitronenmelisse - diese beiden mische ich sehr gerne. Deine süße Köstlichkeit sieht auch sehr dekorativ aus!
    Herzliche Grüße,
    Traude

  14. Hoi,hoi.....lieve Mariette,ik kom heel graag een kopje van deze lekkere muntthee bij jou drinken, uit het prachtige theeservies.

    Hier is het al een poosje een rage op terrassen om muntthee te drinken in hoog dik glas met flinke bos munt waarvan de stelen boven het glas uitsteken.
    Wie eerst heen en weer zat te wiebelen met theezakje in glas heet water....zit nu met munttakken door heet water te wiebelen;-)

    Ik vind het altijd zo leuk om dit te volgen wat er zoal gedronken wordt op terrassen,ging iedereen paar jaar geleden massaal voor de koppen cappuccino met sjabloontje van cacao wat al rap opgevolgd werd door hoog of dubbel glas met latte macchiato, op zomerse dagen is de muntthee favoriet,rosé en prosecco doen het ook goed,vooral op terras waar wijn geschonken wordt in mooi wijnglas op hoge voet en niet in zo'n klassiek Gilde glaasje(ziet er echt niet uit)en als ik goed om me heen kijk begint de grote dorstlesser ook goed in de markt te liggen...en dan heb ik het over de flesjes met Arizona Iced Tea die in mijn optiek echte blikvangertjes zijn met hun vrolijke en toch klassieke uitstraling en ze smaken ook nog eens prima uitsluitend 100% natuurlijke ingrediënten en zitten er dus geen kunstmatige conserveringsmiddelen en kleur- en smaakstoffen in de drankjes verwerkt,ik dronk afgelopen week de Pomegranate Green Tea.

    En nou ik het toch over deze lekkere gezonde vrucht heb, kom ik even terug op jou post:Onze Liz & Telepathie + AMAZING Recept van de Chocolade!

    waar ik dat mooie tafellopertje zie.....met bieten....
    heb ik nou weer te veel fantasie....of....zijn het toch echt granaatappels??

    Kan toch niet zijn dat mijn vertaler het zó krom vertaald en van granaatappels bieten maakt....

    Maakt ook niet uit....het is en blijft een prachtig geschenk!!!

    Liefs,Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Tuurlijk heb je gelijk! Op het lopertje dat zíjn ook granaatappels, erg duidelijk. Liz kocht het destijds als zijnde bietjes (iets wat zij erg graag eet!) maar die verkoopster is duidelijk níet van het platte land geweest. Het recept is wèl met bietjes! Grappig omdat ik ook granaatappel pitjes in pure chocolade koop bij de groothandel hier.Die neem ik als 'n soort mini bon-bonnetje bij de koffie. Granaatappels bevatten ook erg waardevolle vitaminen voor de gezondheid en behoren tot het superfood, rijk aan oxidanten. Niet voor niets dronken we vroeger Grenadine, dat van het sap gemaakt werd. Een aparte ietwat wrang-zoete smaak en dat over de vanille pudding...
      Lieve groetjes,
      Mariette

    You presented this so nice that I want to try it myself. Peppermint tea I have only tasted in bags. Combine that with green tea seems like a good idea.
    The chocolate dessert looks lovely...
    Hugs to you

  21. Liebe Mariette,
    wer einmal frisch gebrühten Pfefferminztee getrunken hat, wird kaum noch getrockneten mögen. Es schmeckt einfach fantastisch. Ich habe heute auch Minztee mit Rosenknospen aufgegossen, allerdings haben sich die Rosen trotz Duft geschmacklich nicht gegen die Minze durchsetzen können. Deine Rosentörtchen sehen lecker aus. Der ganze Tisch mit dem herrlichen Geschirr und den Leckereien und nicht zuletzt mir einer strahlenden Mariette ist sehr einladend. Wie schön, dass wir die Distanz per Bloggen überwinden können.
    Schöne Grüße,
    Johanna

  22. Hoi Mariette,

    Pepermunt thee is ook een van mijn favorieten Mariette. Vooral 's avonds na het eten of op een warme zomerdag in de tuin. Wat een heerlijk uitziende gebakjes serveer je er op de foto bij.

    Fijne week!

  33. Lubię miętę, więc i herbatę też. Dziękuję za deser do niej. Pozdrawiam.
    I like mint, so the tea too. Thank you for dessert to her. Yours.

  34. Pfefferminztee trinke ich am liebsten auch aus frischer Minze aus dem Garten, liebe Mariette. Diese Zeit ist ja leider bald wieder vorbei. Aber ich trockne sie auch - für den Winter. Trinke fast nur losen Tee, auch den Schwarzen, den wir kiloweise von einem fairen Label kaufen.
    Die Phytotherapie ist eine wunderbare Sache. Wir behandeln vieles einfach nur mit Kräutertees oder Kaltansätzen.

    Liebe Grüße
    Sara
