Three types of mint–spearmint, field mint, and peppermint–create a sweet, vibrant, crisp flavor. This caffeine-free tea is great after a meal or to cool off on a hot day.

Field Mint: comes from organic farms in the Uttar Pradesh–about 7 hours' drive east of Delhi, an area famous for mint-growing. Field mint is even mintier than peppermint, and brings peak intensity to Three Mint tea.

Peppermint: a hybrid between watermint and spearmint. Peppermint has vivid, aromatic green leaves, with an invigorating aroma and high menthol content, making it very cooling and refreshing. It's also great for digestion and stomach issues.

Spearmint: originates from Northern Africa and the Mediterranean and was first introduced to Britain by the Romans.

CALM Sips by teapigs

Calm  

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS TEA

Deep breathing, mindfulness, yoga - all great options for calming us down. But if time's not on your side, this tea is a great shortcut to that feeling of calm.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS BRAND

Nick and Louise started teapigs in November 2006 with one mission – to get people drinking real tea again. They met while working for a really big tea company, where they learned all about tea and drank lots of it. The more they learned, and the more they drank, the more they came to realize something: that there's a whole world of quality teas out there that simply aren't getting the attention they deserve. And so teapigs was born.

teapigs, hailing from the UK, has a "no air, no graces, just fine tea" approach. They have a "mix and match," where you can combine two of your preferred teas at a discount, and "piglets" which let you sample their variety of flavors.
