botanical infusion: mintha tea
anise hyssop, peppermint, tarragon
flavor notes : fresh, sweet, uplifting
In Greek mythology, Mintha (or Minthe) was a Naiad nymph beloved by Hades. When she claimed to be superior to Hades’ wife Persephone, the angry goddess transformed Mintha into the mint plant. Hades, trying to comfort her, gave Mintha a delightful and fragrant scent so all would appreciate her sweetness. Mintha subsequently became a sacred plant of Hades, and has come to be a associated with metamorphosed beauty. We love this blend in the morning in the place of caffeine to awaken more gently, or in the evening as a digestif. Delicious hot or iced.

Flowers and Leaves uses locally grown botanicals to create their infusions, in hopes of offering a botanical experience that honors the beauty and lore of the plants. Inspiration comes from the plants themselves – the mythology of their medicine, their potent leaves, delicate flowers, and the intoxicating aroma and flavor they release when infused. Leaves and Flowers botanical infusions are produced by hand in small batches in their California workshop.
Herbs are freshly procured from local farms, then sorted, dried and blended by hand. The climate controlled drying room is designed to preserve the plants at the peak of their vitality. Once the herbs have been dried, they are stripped from the stem and stored away from light and air to maintain their impeccable vibrancy. When blending, herbal ingredients are kept as whole and intact as possible.
