Spearmint has for centuries found ideal growing conditions in Messinia’s temperate climate. Handpicked in the wild, the leaves are left to dry naturally and carefully packed to preserve their uplifting fragrance. It is long valued in Messinia as a traditional herbal remedy and is used to make a refreshing caffeine-free tisane.
Preparation: Boil water in a small pot turn off heat. Add one or two teaspoons of spearmint leaves, let stand for 5 minutes and strain.
Believing that mint was a strong aphrodisiac, Aristotle advised Alexander the Great to prevent his soldiers from drinking spearmint tea during campaigns.
