This rambling mint bush is found across south eastern Australia in moist forests and around waterways. This is a subtle Australian native herb with the taste and aroma of spearmint and pepper.

Wonderful when included in Mint Dressing or teas.

Indigenous Australians also used this herb for medicinal purposes.

NOTE: a kg of fresh leaf yields approx 70gm dried flakes

River Mint Sauce Recipe:

1/4 cup dried river mint
1 cup white vinegar
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Place the dried river mint into a mixing bowl with white vinegar, honey, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Stir well to ensure all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Cover the bowl and let the mixture infuse for at least 30 minutes. 
If desired, adjust the consistency - add more vinegar or honey. Transfer the end result to a sterilized jar or bottle and refrigerate.

Packed in resealable bags to minimise postage costs.

    Adds a delicious flavour to just about any lamb dish, also used in conjunction with other herbs in kangaroo meatballs and stew.

    Students used the mint in several different dishes as part of NAIDOC Week. It was a big hit, the students loved using a native ingredient.

    I ordered this for a Tafe assignment and made and Australian Mint Slice. Using the dried mint gave the slice a coconut consistency, although, there were a fair few twigs, but will put that down to the actual River Mint plant. After ordering this, I realised I needed the item sooner than shipping/delivery was expected, called the store in a panic and spoke to a lovely lady, who shipped the item that night and received it the very next day, best service yet :)

    Sour cream and river mint dip

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Sep 2014

    I baked potatoes for my early year students to dip them into sour cream mixed with river mint. It was delicious. I brewed the mint first before I added the mint to the sour cream.

    This river mint lived up to expectations. The Mango and Native Mint chutney is all I could hope for.
