Native to the Mediterranean region, spearmint (Mentha spicata) has been used for thousands of years as a culinary ingredient and fragrance in cosmetics. However, spearmint is perhaps most esteemed among herbalists for its traditional use to soothe an upset stomach. Alvita Spearmint Tea is made with premium-quality, organic spearmint leaves, and bears a delicate mint flavor and aroma with just a hint of sweetness.
In 1922, a group of alfalfa enthusiasts who believed that alfalfa's rich green foliage and deep root system contained "Vitamines" and minerals essential for good health innovated the way the plant was consumed by providing alfalfa in tea bags. The abbreviation of alfalfa and vitamins quickly led to the brand name "Alvita," and thus the Alvita Tea Company was born.
Every Alvita tea is infused with how much we care about every herb-and how each can benefit you. So making the perfect cup of tea starts with where we get our herbs.
Alvita makes sure that every ingredient comes from responsible growers who make the land-and the herbs that grow on it-their primary concern. From there, their team painstakingly reviews the scientific data to make sure of proper dosage, and the perfect brewing techniques, so that our teas can give you the maximum benefit and the best taste.
