Product Overview

Description

  • USDA Organic
  • Mentha Spicata
  • Herbal Supplement
  • Certified Organic by QAI
  • Kosher

A parent of peppermint and one of the oldest mints cultivated, spearmint is used to flavor all types of foods, such as jellies, jams, candies, sauces, desserts and fruit dishes. It is also used to flavor and fragrance toothpaste, mouthwash, lozenges and chewing gum. Spearmint makes a refreshing herbal tea and is delicious iced or hot.

Native to the Balkan Peninsula and northern and western Turkey (it is often noted that the exact natural range is uncertain due to extensive early cultivation). Also found as an introduced or naturalized plant through most of Europe and the Mediterranean area as well as in North America. Cultivated throughout the temperate region. Spearmint is an herbaceous rhizomatous (forms lateral stems on top of the ground that “creep” to form subsequent plants) perennial plant 30-100 cm tall. It features bright green, sharply pointed, toothed, lance-shaped leaves and flowers in slender, terminal spikes, pink or white, from June-August. The plant should be harvested just before or right as flowers open, as the aromatic components diminish once flowering has ceased.

Commercial product is entirely cultivated from vegetative cuttings due to the high degree of inconsistency in plants grown from seed. Mentha species readily hybridize thus causing offspring that aren't true to the parent. The commercial product is always rich in carvone and related compounds. Essential oil content ranges from 0.8%-2.5% with the quantity and composition varying considerably according to its origin.

Suggested Use

To use as a tea, pour 1 cup boiling water over 1 tsp of herb, cover and steep 3-5 minutes.

Taste like toothpaste

Posted by 5476316734752019067 on Feb 01, 2016

Its spearmint and of course it taste like other mint. But drinking it taste more like drinking toothpaste. Received item with hole at the package therefore the herbs are all over my box. My room is a mess because whenever i walk the i leave a trace of spearmint herb. Haha. Overall ok. Quantity ok. Quality ok. Taste not ok. Need some time to adapt to it.

A medicine

Posted by HonestReviewsHere on Mar 22, 2015

This is only used as a medicine in my case. I rarely get a heartburn or bad movement but when I do, I just brew two teaspoons of this and the pain goes away immediately after finishing the cup. Not kidding. Also it's so soothing and helps me sleep when I can't, not to mention it smells nice. Spicy foods is possible now :)

used for pcos

Posted by Reviewer2255839 on Dec 16, 2014

I bought this because I read that it could be used for hirsuitism when you have PCOS, I get mild hair growth on the chin and this actually did reduce it within a week, therefore slower growth and apparently beginning to get a finer more valous strand I reckon but I would have to use it for longer to be completely sure. Apparently the spearmint tea reduces free testosterone therefore helping with this kind of hair growth. You have to continue drinking it to maintain this effect, two cups a day...I let it brew for a long time to get the most out of it...using 1 heaping tablespoon per 400ml cup. However the only down side is it seemed to reduce my libido a lot. So hmmm good libido and use tweezers or low libido and reduced growth. That's a really hard one. Maybe I will just use a we bit less of it. Probably wouldn't recommend this tea for a man if it reduces testosterone either. I think if a woman with PCOS had really bad hair growth then you might not experience this issue as your testosterone levels would be much higher anyway. Whereas mine maybe only slightly higher than normal...my pcos is very mild now after years of low sugar diet and healthy eating.
