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.

So, maybe it isn't so shocking when I consider how wonderful everything has been from B&B, but dried mint has always been dismal from other sources. I used this in a Greek salad and in tsatziki recently and the flavor was excellent in both. I can actually sub it for fresh in some things, which I never would have thought. :)
I have just used the mint to make mint tea, but for that it is great.
This mint is exceptionally good. I can't believe it! Never will I have anything else.
Incredible quality and love the packaging. Will most definitely purchase again and even send as gifts.
I love the tea these leaves make!!!!!
