spearmint

spearmint

A native of the Mediterranean, spearmint was revered by ancient Romans for its ability to 'stir up the mind.' It continues to be savored for its refreshingly clear aroma and soothing qualities. If you find peppermint a bit too cool sometimes, spearmint is definitely for you. This herb has a rounded, slightly smoother and more grounded taste than peppermint, with warming and cooling notes. Very gentle to the palate, and naturally caffeine free.

Steep at 212° for 5-10 minutes.

fresh from origin

Spearmint is an aromatic herb of the mint family, the common garden mint widely used for culinary purposes. It has lax, tapering spikes of flowers similar to peppermint flowers and sharply serrated leaves that are used fresh or dried to flavor many foods. The aroma and taste of spearmint are similar to those of peppermint but smoother and more grounded. Spearmint is an ingredient in several mixed drinks, such as the mojito and mint julep. Sweet tea - iced and flavored with spearmint - is a summer tradition in the South.
