Our Euphrates Mint grows along the banks of the Euphrates River in southern Turkey, one of the oldest agricultural areas in the world. We first came across this mint while visiting Silk Chili and Black Urfa Chili farms in the area, and we were blown away by its sweetness, brightness and intensity. Crumble dried mint leaves into salads, grain dishes and tomato sauces or simply infuse in hot water for a fragrant mint tea.

Fresh, fragrant spices
I am quite happy with the spices I’d ordered from Burlap & Barrel. The spices are extremely fresh and fragrant. I highly recommend!
Buy it. Real flavor, not overpowering
Never Knew I Needed This!
I generally go outside and trim a few mint leaves if I need mint when I am cooking. I recently combined some Euphrates Mint Leaves with Smoked Pimenton Paprika into a little melted butter(salted) to use as a drizzle on a red lentil soup I made and it was transformed. I am now on a mission to try mint on everything.

Shipping was super fast, and I am enjoying this new spice. I used it in a marinade for lamb and it was delicious. Looking forward to thinking up other uses for this wonderful spice. Brewing some tea might be next.
Excellent Mint - fresh and aromatic
I am almost out of mint because it went so quickly. It's of such good quality. I use it in dressings for dishes like tabouli and it makes a lovely cup of post-supper tea in the evening. I will order more next time!
Best mint I have ever used.
As soon as you open it, the smell is so wonderful. It makes any dish taste brighter and fresher. We use it for tea, salads and cooking. I will definitely buy this again.
