  • I've used the fresh and just do not care for it. I just usually buy it in tea bags, or loose.

  • Dried is better. To use fresh you need to boil the leaves in a pot on the stove for a good while.

  • I normally just buy peppermint tea in a tea box from the grocery Celestial Seasonings or something similar.

  • I buy bags too, but have some fresh in the fridge and was thinking about trying it. I'll dry it first.
