Dry, arid conditions aren't very romantic

But these agricultural landscapes in the American North West provide climatic conditions which make for mint which is incredibly high in essential oils. There's very little rainfall, so unlike mint from Europe - which is typically dried in warehouses after harvest - the US version is simply cut and laid down to dry in the sunshine of the peppermint fields.

“ It makes my mouth feel really clean and pure - it's like I've never drunk or eaten anything naughty in my entire life! ”

Kate Halloran, Tea Innovation Manager

Essential Mint is perfect after dinner

It's a natural digestive - it helps your food to go down by calming the muscles in your stomach. It's also calorie free and caffeine free, which makes it the perfect end to a meal.

Much of the mint grown in the US isn't used for tea - instead, it lends its intense cooling effects to toothpastes and sweets. It's a shame, because that strength makes an unmissable infusion for peppermint fans.
