Our Mint Spice Green Tea is a light, uplifting blended green tea. The aroma is mostly that of spearmint, while the flavor is a more complex blend of spearmint and green tea, with anise appearing as only a light aftertaste. Even if you normally dislike the flavor of anise, don't rule this tea out: The anise only adds a hint of complexity to the dominant flavor of spearmint, rather than dominating the flavor as anise often does.
Spearmint is a very versatile plant, both in its uses and its growing condition requirements. Though it can be grown in a variety of regions, it grows best in moist soil; for this reason, it is actually an invasive species in the Great Lakes region. And gardeners beware: Plant spearmint (and other mint species) in a small pot before placing it in the ground, or it may take over your entire yard!
Bring filtered or spring water to 170°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 3 minutes.
