The Wonderful Season of Peppermint Tea

If you’re a peppermint lover, this is the season for you! With peppermint flavors exploding in every direction – from candies and desserts, to candles and lotions – we’re sending one more peppermint treat your way: Peppermint Tea!

Peppermint Tea not only tastes scrumptious, it has some powerful health benefits that will probably come in handy during this indulgent and chaotic season. And with Zokiva’s Peppermint Tea blends that combine superfoods like Moringa and Graviola with Peppermint, you can get extra doses of nutrients along with your favorite tea flavor.

Check out these fabulous reasons why you should be drinking Peppermint Tea right now:

It Soothes Your Stomach

One of the most well-known benefits of Peppermint Tea is its ability to relax the digestive system which reduces contractions that lead to gas, bloating, indigestion and abdominal pain. Plus, calmly sipping a warm drink, especially after a big meal, can aid digestion.

It Helps You Sleep

Similar to how Peppermint Tea relaxes your stomach, it can relax all of your muscles for better sleep. This calming effect may help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep for more peaceful, restorative rest.

It’s Energizing!

Although it is caffeine-free, Peppermint Tea is stimulating to the brain, resulting in less fatigue and more vitality in your everyday life. When you combine that with naturally energy-boosting Moringa, you’ll get an incredible pick-me-up!

It Freshens Your Breath

It’s no secret, popping in peppermint candy or gum makes your breath minty fresh. The same is true of Peppermint Tea, but with a lot more nutritional value and a lot less calories. So, sip instead of suck or chew next time you need a breath refresh.

It Kills Bacteria

Peppermint is believed to fight off bacteria that lead to infections in the human body. This may help prevent you from getting sick. It also improves oral health by killing bacteria in your mouth.

It Opens Sinuses

When sinus infections or allergies set in, Peppermint Tea can help because it is an anti-bacterial and anti-viral agent. Plus, it may reduce swelling. And the act of breathing in menthol from a hot cup of Peppermint Tea can open nasal passages.

It Relieves Headaches

With muscle-relaxing and pain-relieving properties, Peppermint Tea helps relieve headaches. Menthol in peppermint also helps stimulate blood flow, which can reduce headaches as well.

Zokiva proudly offers four types of Peppermint Tea:

We hope all of you Peppermint Tea lovers get your fill this season! And remember, Peppermint Tea is a healthy super-tea all year long so don’t let the benefits fade when the holidays are over.

New Moringa Tea Blends

 Moringa Hibiscus Peppermint Tea Bags

 

Zokiva is thrilled to continuously offer the best superfoods Mother Nature has to offer. Sometimes the best creations come from two powerful forces joining together to make a superfood combination. That’s exactly what we’ve done with our new Moringa Tea blends. We’re proud to introduce our newest Moringa Hibiscus Tea and Moringa Peppermint Tea to our herbal tea selections.

Moringa is possibly the healthiest whole food on the planet. So it’s no wonder that blending this superfood with other tremendous herbs like ginger, hibiscus and peppermint yields a nutritional powerhouse and a flavor explosion. Now you can enjoy the benefits of Moringa and some of your favorite herbal teas with a sensational burst that will leave your taste buds craving more.

With nearly 100 bio-nutrients, Moringa stands out among the crowd of superfoods. It is a critical life-sustaining food in certain parts of the world thanks to its perfect combination of nutrients including a wealth of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, protein, fiber and other phenomenal phyto-nutrients. Moringa is known for providing a natural source of caffeine-free energy that can power up and push you through your day. It also fuels your muscles, heart, brain and many other essential organs and bodily functions. Moringa supports everything from improved mental clarity and memory, to physical stamina and endurance. Plus it is an excellent immune booster and has age-defying effects as well.

These extraordinary benefits of Moringa are only enhanced when they are combined with staples in the herbal tea category. Check out how each of our new Moringa Tea Blends can support your best health:

Moringa Hibiscus Tea: Tangy and sweet, this duo benefits just about every organ in your body. From blood pressure and cholesterol support, to liver protection and full body cleansing agents, Moringa Hibiscus Tea is a treat from the tip of your tongue to the tip of your toes. Plus, it is great for digestion and can quench your thirst when you need a refreshing and nutritious beverage without adding unnecessary calories.

Moringa Peppermint Tea: Relaxation and freshness are two words that should come to mind when you think of Peppermint Tea. That’s because peppermint helps release tension in blood vessels, like those that lead to headaches, and muscles, such as cramping in the intestines or uterus that cause indigestion, gas and menstrual cramps. The menthol ingredient in Peppermint Tea helps offer sinus relief and freshens breath. Peppermint is also a natural antimicrobial agent so it supports body cleansing, a stronger immune system and clearer skin.

Mix up your healthy tea habit with Zokiva’s new Moringa Blend Teas. With two new flavors to choose from, you’ll love the variety and diversity of nutrients that can spice up your life. Cheers!

Refresh your Breath – and your Health – with Peppermint Tea

We’re coming upon Valentine’s Day and we know you’ll be giving lots of hugs and kisses to your loved ones. Make sure your breath is minty-fresh with delicious Peppermint Tea this Valentine’s Day, and reap many other health benefits too. From easier digestion to a stronger immune system, Peppermint Tea is more than just a breath freshener.

As you may have guessed, Peppermint Tea’s most distinctive ingredient is menthol. It comes from the Mentha piperita leaf and has a variety of medicinal and therapeutic applications. One of the most attractive benefits of Peppermint Tea, especially for lovers everywhere, is its ability to freshen your breath. With a cup after any meal, your breath can be minty and delightful for yourself and anyone around you.

But Peppermint Tea is much more powerful for your health than only a breath freshener. It contains phenomenal antioxidants and other essential nutrients like Vitamin B, calcium and potassium that give you an immune boost to prevent or fight off pathogens, especially bacterial invaders.

Peppermint Tea is often used to ease digestion and reduce unwanted digestive issues such as nausea, vomiting and indigestion. While it not recommended for people with GERD, it can help settle an upset stomach because it is carminative, which means it helps move gas through your body rather than accumulating and leading to bloating and cramping. It is also antispasmodic and analgesic both of which further reduce cramping and pain associated with indigestion.

For these reasons, Peppermint Tea is often recommended to ease symptoms of morning sickness. Nausea and vomiting are typical of morning sickness, whether it’s morning, noon or night. The American Pregnancy Association suggests that pregnant women experiencing morning sickness should sip on Peppermint Tea to curb queasiness and help preserve as much nutrients as possible for moms-to-be who are prone to vomiting.

Being antispasmodic is also helpful in making Peppermint Tea a useful supplement for respiratory conditions. It calms the muscles in the chest to temper coughs that may be due to chronic issues or seasonal illnesses.

Because Peppermint Tea is naturally caffeine-free, it is a great beverage to drink before bed to relax the body. The soothing effects of this minty tea can get you ready for bed and also help reduce any gastrointestinal symptoms that may creep up during the night that could cause wakefulness.

This Valentine’s Day season, freshen your breath and your entire health with Peppermint Tea!

What is Peppermint Tea + How to Drink Peppermint Tea

What is Peppermint Tea

Naturally caffeine-free Peppermint Tea is an invigorating way to lift your morning or afternoon, or to settle into a restful state at night.  Among other active compounds found in the Mentha piperita plant from which Peppermint Tea is derived, menthol is the most potent one.  Menthol offers the cool, tingling flavor associated with mint, which offers a range of health benefits and freshens breath.  Peppermint Tea also contains body-craving vitamins, minerals, naturally occurring chemicals, volatile oils and powerful antioxidants.

Peppermint Tea is often used to calm the digestive system because it is an antispasmodic and has a mild sedative effect.  It relieves gastric distress by soothing intestinal muscles that often cause an upset stomach, diarrhea, cramping, gas and queasiness.  Likewise, Peppermint Tea can calm the nervous system as well, reducing stress and anxiety.  In turn, this helps stabilize blood pressure, reduces muscle tension and headaches and can even lower body temperature. 

With antioxidants and other fantastic immune-boosting nutrients, Peppermint Tea also helps sustain healthy bodily functions.  Antioxidants are known to support cells and protect them against free radicals and other pathogens that can cause sickness and disease.  Menthol also helps make Peppermint Tea a great choice for respiratory conditions and seasonal colds, coughs and congestion because it helps break up mucus in the sinus cavity and relaxes the muscles of the throat to ease coughing.

Many people use Peppermint Tea for weight loss and skin improving purposes too.  Peppermint Tea is believed to rev the metabolism to burn through fat and calories quicker.  Plus, drinking two cups of Peppermint Tea daily can suppress the appetite and is an easy energy-boosting replacement for coffee or sugary drinks.  Antioxidants, phyto-nutrients and menthol esters also combat skin blemishes, dry skin, skin sores and wounds, and the effects of aging on skin.  Simply drinking Peppermint Tea can help resolve many of these skin concerns.
