A native of the Mediterranean, spearmint was revered by ancient Romans for its ability to 'stir up the mind.' It continues to be savored for its refreshingly clear aroma and soothing qualities. If you find peppermint a bit too cool sometimes, spearmint is definitely for you. This herb has a rounded, slightly smoother and more grounded taste than peppermint, with warming and cooling notes. Very gentle to the palate, and naturally caffeine free.
1 tsp per cup steep at 212 for 5-8 minutes
