    My favorite tea is Jamaican peppermint tea. Good

    Why is it taking so long to get this peppermint bush back in stock?

    Genuine mint tree

    It was a great plant. It came and it grew to a nice size...i live in a cold climate so it never made it through the winter. I am trying to get a new one to keep in a pot so i can take indoors.

    Great plant....wish i could get another one.

    so happy

    So happy to have been able to find a Jamaican mint plant after searching for some time. It arrived today and the aroma when I opened the package brought a wave of good Jamaican childhood vibes. That scent.. Thank you

    Having access to cultural foods is important to me - this was worth it!

    I have been searching for months to find this mint online. Jamaicans use this mint for tea. It has a calming earthy flavor -- not aggressively cooling like peppermint and spearmint. I had been looking for an online source in case something ever happened to the mint in my grandfather's backyard that had been there most of my life. Having access to cultural foods is important to me. I kept failing at growing from my own cuttings and got frustrated and worried. Then, unfortunately due to flooding, my grandfather's mint died. Luckily I found it here and was able to gift one to him and get another for myself! It arrived in perfect condition and after over a month, they're both still alive. Mine is indoors under growlights and his is outdoors. I am super grateful and I hope to get more in the future.
