Dried Mint Tea Introduction
You have probably heard of this famous herb because it has so many different uses and grows all around the world. Mint, also known as mentha, is used for cooking, making jams, sauces, syrups, jellies, and candy. It got its name after Minthe, a famous Greek nymph and it’s native to the Mediterranean area and Asia. It is an important ingredient of breath fresheners, mouthwashes, toothpaste, and gum because it fights the bacteria in your mouth and gives you nice breath. It is part of many cocktails, most famously the mojito. But most importantly, mint is used to make tea.
This green colored tea has a refreshing flavor and a recognizable mint smell. The unique taste and aroma of mint tea that is so characteristic comes from the substance called menthol. It is a herbal tea like no else, and if you like different, distinctive flavors, mint tea will quickly become your favorite. Another amazing thing about it is that you can make it into an iced tea. It is an absolutely perfect beverage when it’s hot outside and you’re looking for something to quench your thirst. Mint also has the fascinating ability to literally cool you down because it influences cold sensitive receptors in your body. Isn’t that just amazing?
Mint is a very adaptable herb and it can grow almost everywhere. It is harvested when the growing season ends and its sprigs are cut and tied together in order to dry. When they are completely dried out, the leaves are picked from the sprigs and ground up to make tea. You can drink mint on its own, but you can also add it to other teas to create unique DIY blends.
Mint is a herb that has a long history and was found in Egyptian tombs dating back to 1000 years BC and it is even mentioned in the Bible. The Greeks loved mint and were making mint-scented baths and perfumes. It is from Greek mythology that we get the word mint/mentha from. The story goes that it all happened because of a love triangle. Hades, also known as Pluto, was interested in the nymph named Minthe and tried to seduce her. But he had a wife, Persephone, which was not happy about that situation. Out of jealousy and great anger, she turned poor Persephone into a plant for people to walk on. But Minthe released its aroma and her lover could still smell her whenever he was close.
The Romans valued this herb as a powerful medicine and used it to treat many ailments. They are the ones that are responsible for bringing mint to the West and North Europe, where it quickly got its use as a toothpaste. Finally, mint was brought over to America which is where the majority of the mint production is today.
If you’re still not convinced that you should try mint tea, did you know that drinking it can actually make you healthier?
