Egypt Spearmint ‘Mentha spicata’ makes a refreshing, cooling herbal infusion that is caffeine free. Spearmint, is a close cousin of Peppermint. However, the plant itself tends to have a more rapid growth cycle, has stemless leaves and the flower spikes are narrow and pointed rather than thick and blunt.
Spearmint grows well in nearly all climates. Gardeners often grow healthy it in planters due to its invasive spreading nature. The plant prefers partial shade, but it can flourish in full sun to mostly shade.
We recommend using mineral or spring water at 180F temperature. Use one level teaspoon of leaf for eight ounces of water, and brew for five minutes.
