I am wanting to grow mint to make mint tea. I know some plants need to be pinched at the tips ?; I do not know why exactly, but I don’t know who to ask?

It doesn't "need" it, but invasive plants like mint will react to pinching by growing more vigorously. In fact, any pinching, pruning, or damage otherwise will lead to a bushier and more productive plant.
