Organic and wild, hand picked, ground Greek spearmint (Δυόσμος-Mentha spicata) from the mountains of Epirus, North West Greece.
Spearmint is a cousin of common mint and a favourite herb in Greek cooking. It is widely used in many tomato based sauces and meats, such as meatballs (keftedes in Greek). You will also find it in candies and chewing gums, and recently in drinks such as Mojito. Spearmint makes an excellent herbal infusion, too.
Spearmint is spasmolytic, anti-inflammatory and in high doses aphrodisiac. It is good for digestion, it stimulates the production of bile and the function of the liver. It helps with flu, enteritis and against cramps.
