Daphnis and Chloe Sweetest Mint

Daphnis and Chloe Sweetest Mint

Spearmint is, traditionally, the only mint that Greeks use for cooking, and this beautiful variety is exceptionally sweet and fragrant. Steep it as a tea, toss with squash before roasting, and stir into yogurt to make a cooling sauce. The mint’s freshness can transform a dish, especially when combined with lemon, and is a beneficial digestive.

To use: Crush in a mortar and pestle or with your fingertips just before using. Mix with olive oil and lemon to make a marinade, and warm in ghee or butter to drizzle over yogurt, fresh-cut egg tagliatelle, or roasted eggplant.

Daphnis and Chloe source hand-picked herbs from Greek farmers and foragers who run small and seasonal operations—it took years of tasting across the hidden corners of Greece to identify the herbs most worth sharing. Quantities are limited, depending on how much each forager or producer is able to deliver, and all herbs are gently and naturally dried. 

Your herbs will keep well for a year or two if stored in a dark and dry place.
