Peppermint Leaves

Some days we all need a touch of whimsy; let Peppermint Leaves whisk you away to the place of your dreams. Delicate faux cables flow effortlessly into pretty leaves that dance around your head, leading up towards the beautifully shaped crown. Choose yarn with a beautiful stitch definition to accentuate the details. Available in three sizes.

The tea: Mint tea comes in a wide variety of styles. Maghrebi Mint Tea, traditionally drunk in north west Africa is served hot and sweet. A similar tea is created in Spain and France but is usually drunk ice-cold, beautifully refreshing on a hot summers day. Peppermint tea makes a great after dinner tea!
