Organic Peppermint Leaves
Country of Origin:
Our organic dried peppermint leaves come from the strongly aromatic perennial herb of the mint family "Lamiaceae". Peppermint has a strong sweetish odour and a warm pungent taste with a cooling aftertaste. The plant is a hybrid between watermint "Mentha aquatica" and spearmint "Mentha spicata".
Peppermint has square stems, stalked, smooth, dark green leaves, and blunt oblong clusters of pinkish lavender flowers. As with other mints, the plant can spread aggressively by means of stolons (underground stems). Natural hybridization among wild species has yielded many varieties of peppermint.
Our dried peppermint leaves are perfect for tea, mint yogurt dressings for curries and Indian snacks, North African dishes, and chargrilled courgettes.
In order to keep our organic herbs, spices & seasoning blends as fresh as possible we keep our standing inventory very low. There may be up to a 4 week lead time for this product to get you the freshest products possible.
