Mint, Karnak Farm

$15.00
| /

If you think you know mint, this one may be a surprise: from its floral aroma, balanced flavor and chartreuse color when brewed, it offers a mellow and buttery take on the beloved herbal. It’s grown at 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 infusion will relax and soothe.

Unique mint

Very good quality, and a unique mint flavor -- quite spearmint-y. I personally prefer peppermint, but that is personal preference. Fun to try, and feels very fresh.

deliciously complex

Rather than the single note of peppermint tea, this has a lovely complex flavor with hints of peppermint, but also spearmint, and other warm, refreshing scents. Makes a gorgeous pot of tea to share in the evenings, and the cats are always a bit curious, so I suspect it smells like cat-mint a little, as well!
