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.

The size of the bag took me by surprise! Was not expecting such a huge bag! Pleasantly strong aroma. I brought some to work and everyone loves it. Works a treat for nausea, dizziness, indigestion and bad breath. My whole family is now drinking this too. Looking forward to buying more Frontier Natural products.

Thanks for your feedback!
