Spearmint - Mentha spicata
Spearmint is one of our more popular herbal teas. A refreshing mint, Spearmint is smoother and sweeter than Peppermint, so if you find Peppermint a bit harsh or it causes acid reflux this may be the mint for you. As well as Spearmint being an aid to ease an upset stomach, Menthol - one of the active ingredients in Spearmint, has a soothing effect on the body, which has been known to produce a calm, relaxed state. A cup of Spearmint tea can help ease your mind and eliminate the negative effects of stress hormones on your body’s systems.
Add 1 - 2 teaspoons to a small teapot or bleach free tea filter/infuser, add boiling water and allow to steep.
Did you know Spearmint also goes well when combined with Peppermint or Rose.
