Spearmint leaves are much milder in effect than peppermint and are used mainly as a great tasting beverage tea and as a culinary herb. Spearmint is a perennial herb that is grown in temperate climates worldwide. The leaves are harvested when its pale purple flowers come into bloom from July to September. Most spearmint leaf is distilled to make essential oil and a small amount is dried for use as tea. We select high oil spearmint leaf that meets pharmacopoeial medicinal grade herb standards.
How does it taste? Pleasantly aromatic and sweet. In contrast to peppermint, spearmint does not produce a cooling sensation. Children often find it to be more pleasant than peppermint. Combines well with honey or lemon.
For maximum benefit, medicinal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a cup. Cover cup and steep 5-10 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release the remaining extract.
Drink several cups daily. Sweeten with honey if desired. For an extra strength brew, use two teabags or brew up a whole pot using four or five teabags.
