Persephone discovered Hades in the arms of the nymph, Minthe. Mad with jealousy, she turned Minthe into a plant to be trodden underfoot. Hades endowed his beloved's leaves with an enticing scent that would declare itself with every footfall, causing all to love her.
Peppermint, a cross between watermint and spearmint, has a very high menthol content, giving our blend its strong, minty aroma and flavour. Great enjoyed hot or cold, our tea goes down easily and swiftly, leaving a cool aftertaste on the palate, perfect for refreshing the weariest of drinkers.
"I have used your teas in many dishes over the years. I have a wood-smoked lamb rack with the chamomile tea, and have used the peppermint in soups and dressings." - ICON Mark Hagan
