In brief: Once a day

Peppermint can cause issues too if you drink or ingest too much of it.

In brief: 4-5 times per day

Tea: steep 1 tsp.
Dried peppermint leaves in 1 cup boiling water for 10 minutes; strain and cool. Drink 4 - 5 times per day between meals. Peppermint tea appears to be safe, even in large quantities.
