Watermint, spearmint and peppermint.
These mints come from the northwest United States. The pure, moist mountain air of the spring and early summer growing season gives these mints some of the highest volatile oil counts recorded.
Generally (dependent upon weather patterns) the second cut (takes place during mid/end August) is the most flavorful, coolest and most pungent, (literally takes your breath away and makes your eyes water).
Mints are herbs and contain no caffeine. Quite often they are consumed after meals as the oils stimulate the flow of bile to the stomach and help relieve gas pains. They are also known to sweeten the breath and calm the digestive system, plus help heartburn, stomach aches and nausea.
Mint has been around so long the actual genealogy is obscure. It has been reported as a stewing herb by ancient Hebrews and it has been found in 3000-year-old Egyptian tombs. 2000 years ago, the Japanese cultivated mint as a source of menthol.
As a hot tea it is cool and refreshing as an iced tea the menthol content produces a pleasantly chilling taste sensation.
