Peppermint tea does have diuretic effects. The effects will come mostly from
the drinking of cold peppermint tea, as opposed to hot peppermint tea.

Do not drink before bed!!! I grew peppermint this year, to compliment my regular garden mint patch. I had cut some and dried it and decided to make some tea after dinner. It was so good I had two cups. I spent the rest of the night waking up and going to the bathroom every hour or two. It is definitely a diuretic.
