Best Damn Mint
Got to Love Best Damn Mint (formerly Feel Fantastic Mint Tea)
Who want to feel Mint-tastic every day? I do. Well, if you drink The Naked Botanical's mint tea, we can't guarantee that you can fly but pretty close to it.
The tea contains several types of mint including spearmint, chocolate mint, pineapple mint, apple mint and lemon balm.
Wait, apple mint and pineapple mint AND chocolate mint. Now that sounds amazing.
Hold on. We like to be transparent.
Apple mint and pineapple mint taste like a spearmint. Chocolate mint tastes like a smooth peppermint. So, this tea doesn't taste like a slice of apple with pineapple with a dab of chocolate. Boy, do we wish.
The names are are their common botanical names created by someone who wanted Farmer Anna to buy the mint thinking it would taste like apple and pineapple. And guess what, she did. (Okay, we must confess. She is a sucker...)
100 plants and 10 years later, our apple mint, pineapple mint and chocolate mint still taste like we listed above.
Even despite the realization that we weren't producing mint that tasted like apple and pineapple, the combination of our 5 mints is just the best damn mint tea you will ever try. We are so lucky that Farmer Anna was such a sucker for those mint names.
What Does The Best Damn Mint Taste Like?
A beautiful melody of mint that is smooth as a baby's tush. Yep, this one is so smooth with your last sip being chocolate mint.
We renamed the Mint Tea
You know you are on to something when customers try our mint at the farmer market and they smile at you and say, "now that's good." Or that is the best damn mint tea we ever tried. So we renamed it. We love our customers since they provide us with such inspiration.
And guess what. We stand by that name. Our mint blend is fresh, smooth and ridiculously amazing.
Why? Because our mints are fresh off the plants so you can really taste the difference.
We even get poetic and think of our mint tea like fine wine with its different levels of taste in each note. (Just indulge us. We get a little carried away.) Sometimes you taste spearmint in a gulp or maybe it is the chocolate mint that rounds out the taste.
Whatever it is--mint makes you feel good. Our little mood booster rock star.
We think it is like an apple a day keeps the doctor away. In our case, it is drink a cuppa of Mint Tea each day keeps the doctor away!

We grow organically on our farm and source only from certified organic farms. Our sourcing preference is from local or regional US herb farms.
Our farm was recently certified organic. We are slowly transitioning our products to be certified organic; however we need to use up all our pre-certified herbs in the meantime. Please note, all of our sourcing partners were and are certified organic.
OUR POLICY ABOUT ADDING ARTIFICIAL OR NATURAL FLAVORS.
No can do.
We do not add artificial or natural ingredients to our teas. We let the herbs speak for themselves.
On the farm, our herbs run around naked…
But you knew that.
HOW TO BREW BEST DAMN MINT TEA
Take one heaping teaspoon if you are using the loose tea (or more to your liking. We know some of you like your tea strong.) Add it to the reusable bag or your handy tea strainer. Either rub the bag with your hands like you are rubbing Aladdin’s Genie’s lamp or use a spoon to break up the herbs in a tea strainer. (We like our cartoons.)
If you are using a tea bag, rub the bag lightly.
The rub motion releases the essential oils in the herbs to give you a better cup of tea.
Then pour boiling water over the bag and let it steep for 10 minutes. If you forget about it, don’t fret, the tea is good cold too. (We forget about our tea all the time, and so we are used to drinking it cold. We are busy keeping those nude herbs under control.)
You can use the tea bag more than once.
In the case of our reusable bag, use the herbs twice and then let the bag dry. It is not fun removing wet herbs from a wet bag. Once dry, remove the herbs and throw them in your food or smoothie. They still have benefits. Why not use them?
You can do the same thing with our tea bags. Just rip open the bag and toss into your food.
Don't Forget. Always Close That Lid!
We know. We sound like your mother.
As you know, we are pretty hyper about the quality of our herbs. (Sometimes to a fault.)
We want you to have the freshest cup to enjoy each time. So, please close the lid tightly to keep the air out.
Herbs like Superman have kryptonite. In this case, air, heat, and light are herbs' enemies. Sadly, they will rob you of the enjoyment of the fantastic taste of the herbs.
Our herbs thank you. They work hard to make your tea taste good. They fight bugs, yeast, mold and whatever fury Mother Nature throws at them and keep on being awesome.
Do you need a mood booster? Rock it with our Best Damn Mint. Um, go buy some.
