Lively, lovely and delightful.
Aromatic and sweetly minty, spearmint is widely used as a refreshing beverage.
Reason to Love
We like to think of spearmint as the fun-loving, slightly less intense cousin of peppermint. In fact, spearmint and peppermint are so closely related, and look so much alike, they’re often confused for one another. Soft and sweet, with that characteristic minty zing, spearmint is so named because of its pointy, spear-like leaves. Milder than peppermint, it is still aromatic and refreshing. We love it for its distinctly spearminty, mildly sweet flavor.
Fragrant, sweet and minty.
What’s in your cup?
One of our favorite sources of organic spearmint is from the Sakaran Society Development Association, named after the village of Sakaran in Egypt (about one-and-a-half hours south of Cairo). This Association gave a way for this community to develop additional sources of income and enhance their quality of life. Currently, about 78 farmers cultivate organic spearmint, as well as other organic herbs, on four farms, all of which are Fair Trade Certified™. The farmers use the Fair Trade premium they receive for necessary community development improvements.
