Work stressing, kids yelling, and Twitter, um, Twittering. With all of these things going on sometimes we get run down and need something to sooth our tired minds and bodies. Our Mint Medley helps even the most battered soul chill out. The combination of peppermint, spearmint, lemongrass, and lavender is high in antioxidants and is good for stressed out throats and stomachs. The taste is smooth without being overly sharp like many mint teas. And the lemongrass and lavender help to add a bit of brightness.
Organic Peppermint, Organic Spearmint, Organic Lemongrass, Organic Lavender
Both our peppermint and spearmint come from Oregon and Washington. This region has become popular for their fantastic mint due to the dry desert climate which enhances the flavor and discourages some of the problems humid climates cause the plants. The mint leaves are harvested in July and are cut into rows and are naturally dried in the fields for five days, which keeps a bright green color and fresh flavor. Our lemongrass is grown just outside the Assam region in India where the subtropical climate is ideal. The lavender is grown in the South of France where the climate is dry and the sunshine abundant.
