In Greek mythology, Mintha was a Naiad nymph beloved by Hades. When Hades’ wife Persephone learned of his love for Mintha, Persephone cast a spell and transformed Mintha into what we know as the Mint plant. Hades, in his grief, gave Mintha’s leaves a fresh and enlivening scent so all would appreciate her undying sweetness. We love Mintha Tea in the morning to awaken more gently or in the evening as an after dinner digestif. Recommended hot or iced.
