The history of tea is believed to date back over 5,000 years to ancient China. Tea is believed to possess many medicinal benefits and has become one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world today. Mint was originally used as a medicinal herb to treat stomach aches and chest pains. During the Middle Ages, powdered mint leaves were used to whiten teeth. Mint's essential oils are also used in medicine as a component of many drugs and are very popular in aromatherapy.
