    Might just be the hot liquid like Donna suggested. I've also read that mint is very soothing for IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and as there is "cross-talk" between the nerves of the bladder & bowel, so helping one might help the other?

    I drink mint tea all the time but haven't taken notice on whether it helps with frequency or not. At least it isn't hurting me so I guess that's a plus. I did notice though that chamomile tea helped my bladder a lot when it was spasming and cramping.

    It could be that just adding the liquid is soothing. I haven't tried mint tea, but we do have some mint plants so I can try it.

    Mint tea as pain relief

    Dear All
    Have recently started drinking fresh mint tea (just mint leaves in boiling water) - part of my hunt for enjoyable drinks without caffeine or acid. I have found that if I have a cup before bedtime it drastically reduces the number of times I am up in the night. I can get 6 hours sleep straight some nights.
    Does anybody know anything about why mint might help?
    Has anybody else tried it?
    Thanks
