So there have been a couple studies in the near east/Eurasia suggesting that spearmint, like lavender, may help reduce androgen levels. For some ladies with excess hair growth, especially those with PCOS, that may be super awesome. I’m more or less a side show freak, considering the way my hair grows, and so I decided to consume spearmint tea. This was the only tea I could find originally that had spearmint (because Mint Medley was only in the sampler set). It’s actually the best minty tea I’ve ever had sans the natural grow-your-own-and-put-it-in-hot-water kind. I can’t speak for the homeopathic nature of this tea, but it’s kept me calm and happy and hydrated for the last year or two. I take it with milk and sometimes honey. It has a nice smooth black tea base, and the spearmint is strong yet not skunky. I definitely oversteep it, though — the longer, the better.
