Flavor Profile:Cool, refreshing, crisp infusion with a sweet, menthol aroma.Ingredients:100% Organic Spearmint Leaves.Certified Organic by:Quality Assurance International (QAI)
Spearmint in its general characteristics resembles peppermint, but tends to have a more rapid growth cycle. The lance-shaped leaves are generally stemless, and the flower spikes are narrow and pointed rather than thick and blunt. This herbal tea is made from the dried leaves collected before the flowers are fully developed. Caffeine free.

Herbal teas with light, delicate blossoms or leaves require somewhat shorter steeping times and lower temperatures than other more hearty herbs. We recommend using 2 teaspoons of leaf per 8oz of near boiling water (180 to 200 F) and steeping 3 to 5 minutes. This provides a sweeter, better tasting brew while repeated infusions allow you to extract all the nutritional and medicinal benefits from the herb.
Herbal teas can be brewed in porcelain, ceramic, glass, or stainless steel but never in aluminum or other harmful materials. Be sure to cover the cup or teapot while steeping to prevent the loss of fragrant essential oils and other therapeutic and nutritional elements.
