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.

Excellent. Your spices are the best we’ve purchased to date, and we try many companies and use lots of spices and herbs in our cooking and baking. You rock!!!
Using it daily for tea, couldn’t be happier. Thank you!
Delicious strong mint flavor.
The subtlety of dried mint leaves was greatly preferred over fresh in salads and sauces
Euphrates mint has a stronger scent and flavor than any I’ve used and frankly better than what I’ve grown this year. A small amount gives a subtle addition to a dish or it is perfect as a dominant flavor!
