The Spearmint

  • September 2016

Moroccan Mint

In North Africa, specifically in Morocco, Mint is known as Nanah and epitomizes hospitality and conviviality. A glass of Mint tea is traditionally served to passing travellers. It can also be found finely chopped with a pinch of cinnamon on orange salads.


Fresh sensation

Caraway dominates the flavour palette, before letting the resinous notes of pine needles or sap & green notes reminiscent of cut grass burst. Low-key hints of white flowers can also be noticed. The fresh sensation is moderate and short lived. A slightly pungent taste can be felt on the palate.



Lemon Basil, the alter ego of Spearmint:

Spearmint awakens the fresh taste of Lemon Basil to create a sublime dressing for summer tabboulehs.
