Mint, Karnak Farm

| /

If you think you know mint, this one may surprise you: from its floral aroma, balanced flavor and chartreuse color when brewed, this is a mellow and buttery take on the beloved herbal. It’s grown on an organic farm in southern Maine from a lesser-known variety called apple mint or woolly mint (Mentha suaveolens).

The purity of flavor comes from careful production: the farmer harvests only the first cut of the leaves—most mint herbals contain a blend of the first and the lower-oil-content second cuts. After several days of solar drying, the leaves are then gently machine-threshed and cut to yield consistent size. Naturally caffeine-free, this fragrant infusion will relax and soothe.
