Consuming healthy foods and beverages plays a key role in digestion and in maintaining daily wellness. Sharing this philosophy, our herbalists created our organic Peppermint Delight® Probiotic tea to provide you a daily cup of digestive support. Like a breath of fresh air, a cup of peppermint tea can uplift and soothe us when we need it most. Tapping into this time-honored tradition, we blended our aromatic, menthol-rich peppermint with its milder herbal cousins, spearmint and lemon balm, for balanced minty flavor. Minty, earthy and slightly sweet, with the added bonus of a probiotic to support healthy digestion, our Peppermint Delight Probiotic tea is delicious at any time of day.

Naturopaths and herbalists believe that cultivating good gut health helps maintain a healthy digestive system, as well as a healthy body. In addition to delivering nutrients to the body, the gut functions as “the second brain” and also accounts for 80% of our immune system, which is why a healthy digestive system is so intricately connected to our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. It’s not surprising, then, that the word ‘probiotic’ stems from the compound of Latin and Greek, “for life.”

To make our tea, we use a shelf-stable and heat tolerant probiotic called Bacillus coagulans. We also source some of our favorite peppermint for this tea from Trout Lake Farm, one of the finest organic farms in Washington State, let alone the United States. Located where the rainy west converges with the sunny east, and situated at the foot of a dormant volcano, the farm creates the ideal breeding ground for herbs like our peppermint. As pristine as it is beautiful, Trout Lake Farm and its surrounding town take pride in using organic farming practices from as long back as they can remember, making for an enthusiastic and sustainable community, as well as nutrient-rich soils. The collective effect of the terroir and their rigorous organic farming practices allows our partner farmers to achieve a high concentration of essential oils in our peppermint, making our tea deliciously aromatic, soothing and uplifting!

Whether enjoyed as your hot morning cuppa, a before- or after-meal companion, or as a refreshing afternoon pick-me-up, our probiotic tea delights the senses while supporting digestive health. Experience for yourself how good daily wellness can taste and put the wind back in your sails.
