Dried spearmint leaves make a minty, refreshing drink that is highly satisfying both hot and cold. A native of the Mediterranean, peppermint leaves were often used to crown luminaries in ancient Greece and Rome. It continues to be revered for its refreshingly light aroma, as well as its natural, caffeine-free taste. If you have yet to try gourmet spearmint tea, you'll be pleasantly surprised by its superior flavor. Our organic spearmint tea is made with the finest US grown organic spearmint.

Spearmint is a herb that naturally contains no caffeine. Quite often spearmint tea is consumed after meals as the oils in the mint stimulate the flow of bile to the stomach and helps to relieve gas pains. Additionally, spearmint sweetens the breath, calms the digestive system, eases heartburn, stomach aches, and nausea. An interesting and tingling way to use spearmint is to place a handful of spearmint leaves in your bath water which will lower your body temperature - perfect for cooling fevered skin or after working on a hot summers day.

There are approximately 260 naturally caffeine free organic tea bags per pound.

Suggested Use: Steep 1 tea bag in 6 oz of boiling water for 7-10 minutes.
