OK as far as known: There is relatively research on the interactions of drugs and herbs but I am not aware of any evidence that thyroxine and peppermint tea interact. See http://tinyurl.com/nxfsatt for a good article on known thyroxine interactions. This article discusses a surprising number of interactions between peppermint and meds but does not mention thyroxine: http://tinyurl.com/kcbn6r3
