Leaf Type: Herbal
Where to Buy: Enjoying Tea
This wonderful field grown and sun-dried spearmint is from Washington State. Spearmint is highly appreciated for its digestive properties and its ability to relieve nausea. It’s often used to help relieve headaches and tension. Use spearmint to add a kick to your favorite tea!
I really don’t drink a lot of herbal teas. I prefer teas with Camellia Sinensis (the tree from which tea leaves are harvested) rather than herbal tisanes, but later in the evening, I really like to sip on a “tea” – but I don’t really want all that caffeine keeping me up all night. That’s when I usually turn to herbal teas.
And, sometimes, it’s nice to wind down after a long (and spicy!) day with something fresh and pure like this Spearmint. Spearmint is often used to help with digestive discomfort, so it’s especially good after eating something spicy (tonight we had tacos!) Plus … it leaves the mouth feeling minty fresh – a nice bonus.
This is pure Spearmint from Washington State (which is where I live), and the taste is crisp and clean. It has a natural sweetness to it – so it doesn’t need any sweetener. It doesn’t taste medicine-y or like mouthwash – it tastes light and refreshing.
Not something that I drink all the time… but I’m really enjoying it right now! It is also a great “tea” to keep on hand, because it makes a great addition to other teas should you wish to “kick it up a notch” (to borrow a catch phrase from a well-known chef). I especially like to add a little Spearmint to plain, organic honeybush for a minty, sweet, late-night treat!
