According to an ancient myth, it was Demeter the goddess of the earth, who created the mint plant by punishing the disobedient nymph Minthe and turning her into what would later be one of the Western world’s most popular herbs.
Sourcing: Our cool and sweet peppermint comes from an organic farm at the foothills of Mount Minthi, not far from the fields where the plant gained its name in antiquity. The fragrant leaves of the plant are left whole, allowing you to revive the aromas right when needed, by rubbing them with your fingers just before use.
