Celebration Herbals Organic Spearmint Leaf Tea Description
The use of mint is documented in the Bible and in herbal manuals of ancient apothecaries. In those times, mint was a different plant closely related to the blend "horse mint" or "wild mint". It is only through thousands of years of horticulture that we now have such a potently aromatic and invigorating herb as Spearmint.
Spearmint is appreciated chiefly for its high oil content and "double mint" flavor. We owe a debt of gratitude to our forbearers for giving us this wonderful and luscious plant.
Suggested Usage: Good water is an essential part of brewing a great cup of tea. We recommend using spring or filtered water, be sure to relax. Some of the most enjoyable aspects of tea are the calmness and ritual that surround it.
If you desire medicinal tea: Use one tea bag per cup of hot water in a stainless steel or glass pot, cover, boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes. This is known as the decoction method. Extra tea can be kept in a covered glass jar for a day or two in the refrigerator.
If you desire a pleasure tea or quick brew: Use one tea bag per cup of hot water. Pour boiling water over teabag, and let steep 3 to 5 minutes to taste. Enjoy.
