In Greek mythology, Mintha was a Naiad nymph beloved by Hades. When Hades’ wife Persephone heard of Hades' love for Mintha, Persephone cast her away and transformed her into what we know as the mint plant. Hades, desiring to comfort Mintha, gave her a delightful and fragrant scent so all would appreciate her lovely sweetness. Mintha was forever a sacred plant of Hades, and has come to be associated with metamorphosed beauty.

We love this blend in the morning to awaken more gently, or in the evening as an after dinner digestif. Recommended hot or iced.

INGREDIENTS: Anise Hyssop, Peppermint, Tarragon

FLAVOR NOTES: Fresh, Sweet, Uplifting

NOTE FROM SARAH: I can't get enough of this tea this spring. I brew a giant mason jar of it hot and chill it in the fridge. Then add meyer lemon juice and their zest and the slightest bit of honey for an enlivening beverage at peak sun on these newly warm spring days.

18-20 servings in 1 oz Loose Leaf Pouch.

Sarah's Mint Lemonade

There's nothing more refreshing on a hot day than this mint-infused lemonade. Sip on this supremely refreshing iced beverage when spring brings a heat wave and you'll be practiced to serve it every day in summer. The zest good for the brain, taking away that sluggish brain feeling hot days bring.
