We love this aromatic spearmint and its distinctly sweet, minty taste.
We like to think of spearmint as the fun-loving, slightly less intense cousin of peppermint. They’re often confused for each other because they look so alike, but spearmint has pointy, spear-like leaves and a softer, milder, minty sweet flavor.
Ancient writings reveal that people have used mint since the time of the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. The Romans collected mint—likely spearmint—using it as a flavoring in their food and in their daily hygiene. Some of our favorite spearmint is cultivated by a collective of organic farmers in Egypt.
Refresh and enliven your spirit with this rejuvenating and distinctly spearminty tea.
