Australian Wild Mints can be used as a substitute in recipes where ever mint is called for. Its strong mint flavour and aroma is wonderful in both savoury and sweet dishes. It makes an absolutely wonderful digestive tea, or iced sweet tea.
We source both Slender and River Mint (rivermint) for this product from all over Australia. The product comes in a 50g sealed and recyclable bag, dried and ground. The size of the grind will depend on where we source from and varies.

Our products are all made in Australia from 100% locally sourced, seasonal and wild harvested produce.
In our efforts to be zero waste and plastic free, and with the changes to recycling in Australia, we will be phasing out all bags that you purchase. For now you may receive your spices, teas and home products in either black, white or clear plastic, and once that is all gone our amazing new compostable plant-based packaging will be what you will receive products in.
