With a recorded history in China dating from the 4th century B.C.¸ Ginger (Zingiber officinale) has been used extensively throughout the centuries for both culinary and health purposes. The name Ginger is derived from the Sanskrit gringa or horn and vera meaning body¸ in reference to the shape of the root. Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is a universally-loved and widely-used flavoring. Health interest in mints dates from the first century A.D. when it was recorded by the Roman naturalist Pliny. Peppermint’s value comes from the mint’s volatile oil¸ which contains menthol¸ and is added to many formulas for its beneficial properties. Combined¸ Ginger and Peppermint make a refreshing tea.
