Cool, Calm and Collected - Our Fabulous Range of Delicious Mint Teas
The refreshing taste of mint must surely be one of the most popular flavours, and is used in a multitude of sweet and savoury dishes and drinks. Mint works particularly well as an ingredient for herbal teas and tisanes, with its lively flavour and uplifting aroma.
Mint (Mentha) is a perennial herb from the mint family, Lamiaceae, of which there are many varieties. The origin of its name is associated with Greek mythology, where it is told that a water nymph called Minthe (or Menthe) attempted to seduce Hades, the Greek God of the Underworld. His wife, Persephone, was so enraged that she transformed Minthe into a plant, now known as the herb mint.
The soothing properties of mint are known to be helpful for a number of digestive problems, such as indigestion, nausea, IBS and stomach cramps, and to ease the pain of headaches and relieve congestion. Mint has antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, and contains a number of vitamins and essential minerals. It’s a great breath freshener and its invigorating nature may help with alertness and memory retention.
