Mint Leaves, Peppermint, Organic

Spearmint and peppermint are the leaves of a perennial herb which are used fresh or picked and dried for longer storage. These herbs retain much flavor when dried and produce a strong taste. Mint leaves have a pure and refreshing odor accompanied by a pungent and burning taste.

"As for the garden of mint, the very smell of it alone recovers and refreshes our spirits, as the taste stirs up our appetite for meat." - Pliny

Peppermint leaves are often steeped to produce a tea which is said to cure nausea, headaches and indigestion. They are also often used to flavor candies and liqueurs.
