Herb Garden Naturals
Herbal Tea, Mint "Joyce's Curly Mint"
This is one of the mints we grow here. Organically, sustainably, in partnership with the earth, the seasons, the rains and the moon.
This mint came from my mother-in-law's garden and has become a true favorite with everyone. We call it Joyce's Mint, and it is a curly, bright green leaves it imparts a vivacious mint flavor.
Our herbs are hung in a typical drying shed with lots of air circulation and in the dark. They retain their color and those lovely characteristics of the plant.
We never put the dried leaves through a screen to remove them from the stem. We strip them off by hand leaving the herb as whole as possible which means the flavor profile remains as rich as possible. Whenever an herb is crumbled, it's volatile essential oil (its essence) is released. Its healing properties, its scent, its flavor: released.
We think YOU should be the one to release the essence of the herb.
After all, it does you no good if all the power of the herb dissipates into my Herbary!
So we send you the whole herb leaf with the intention of letting YOU crumble it into your hot water for a healing tea, or into a light oil to make a healing rub, or muddled into a cocktail... You get the idea!
Our 15 gram brown bag is biodegradable with a plant-based was lining to keep your dried herbs fresh. For the longest shelf life, store out of the sun, away from heat.
Of of course, simply enjoying your peppermint regularly is the best idea of all!
