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 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.

Love it. Added to a left-over chicken stir fry. The scent is great. Will have to make tea with it.
The perfect mint!! Great for salads and yummy on pasta
When you open the jar, the mint smells just like fresh picked mint. It's fabulous!
The spices came soon and they are all so fresh! They are all so unusual and of such high quality. We have been very impressed.
