According to an ancient myth, Demeter, the goddess of the earth, created this herb by punishing the disobedient nymph Minthe and turning her into what would later be one of the Western world’s most popular flavors.

Daphnis & Chloe's sweet and refreshing peppermint comes from an organic farm at the foothills of Mount Minthi, not far from the fields where the plant gained its name in antiquity. 

The leaves are left whole, allowing you to revive the aroma right when needed by rubbing them with your fingers just before use.

Peppermint makes a great herbal tea. You’ll need a teaspoon (that’s less than a g) per cup, dosage on taste. Simmer for 5mins at 95C, covered. Strain and serve. You can also use it in syrups, ice cream, or powdered over salads.

  • 20g/0.7oz
  • Loose leaf tea and cooking herb 
  • Awaken herb by rubbing the leaves between fingers before use.
  • Sourced from a small organic farm in Greece 

Daphnis and Chloe was established in 2013, in a small workshop right under the Acropolis Hill of Athens. The team's dream was to see the limited batch terroir herbs of Greece in the kitchens of home cooks worldwide. 

Daphnis and Chloe come from a small country with a peculiar geographical distribution and variable micro-climates where Mediterranean herbs thrive. Studied by scientists and traded by farmers since the beginning of history, these little known ingredients have great culinary value. However, they rarely cross the borders of their places of origin. 

The D&C team's job has become to travel the country for superior herbs and inspire farmers to believe in forgotten, heirloom varieties. They source from small organic farms across Greece, and they know their growers by their first name. Curating their plants’ journey from sourcing to shipping, the team makes sure they’ll maintain their magical properties all the way to your kitchen!
