Mint, Karnak Farm

$16.00
| /

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.

The closest thing to freshly cut mint

I finally found a wonderful mint tea! I used to gently tear fresh mint leaves and let them seep in hot water but that is time consuming. This Karnak Farm Mint tea is the next best thing. The chartreuse color it creates, when briefly seeped, is just like the color that fresh mint renders. The taste is elegantly minty and not overbearing, gently complex and sophisticated with a clean finish. The best mint tea period.

Who knew mint could have this kind of a mouth feel? It's wondrous.
