Pungent, cool, fresh, menthol. Infused leaf is bright green, tending yellowish. This peppermint comes from the northwestern United States. The pure, moist mountain air of the spring and early summer growing season gives this peppermint some of the highest volatile oil counts of any member of the mint family. Generally the second cut (takes place during mid/end August) is the most flavorful, coolest and most pungent. Quite often peppermint is consumed after meals as the oils stimulate the flow of bile to the stomach and helps relieve gas pains. Additionally, it has been reported that peppermint sweetens the breath and calms digestive system, plus it helps hearburn, stomach ache and nausea.
