The name "Rann" comes from the Hindi word ran (रण) meaning "salt marsh".
hop-Chee-Rann Blend ? (The Sacred Mint) ? A potent combination of rare mints ? Pepper-Spear
In herbalism, spearmint is steeped as tea for the treatment of stomach anxiety and nervousness. Mint is capable of increasing the respiratory flow as a result of the menthol it contains. It also stimulates a sense of refreshment and calming.
The Mun Lhundo monks had become expert horticulturists and had a secret method used in the cross pollination of water mint and spearmint, creating a strikingly fragrant and soothing species of Peppermint. Spearmint was revered by ancient Romans for its ability to 'stir up the mind.'
In the language of herbs, Peppermint means healing, homey virtue, hospitality, purification and wisdom. The name 'spear' mint derives from the plants pointed leaf tips shared with its hybrid offspring.
Peppermint has muscle relaxant properties; Spearmint is known for its aromatic qualities and both are grown for their carminativa oil. Both are known to grow well in nearly all temperate climates. Although these plants prefer partial shade, they can flourish in full sun to mostly shady. However, both Mentha mints are best suited to saturated soils with plenty of organic material.
The Mun Lhundo monks relied on a routine of scheduled meditative meeting sessions to provide them with guidance and vision toward their path to prosperity. They set off on their travels west, to the Arabian Sea, traveling along the southern side of the Aravalli Range. This region is one of the most geologically stable land masses in the world. The Mun Lhundo Monastery had found its new home to the south of the The Thar Desert, also known as the Great Indian Desert, by the mysterious salt marsh known as the Rann of Kutch. The Aravalli Range is rich in minerals that can be found throughout the region, primarily mica and iron ore, with diamonds, gold and other metals in the Vindyar region.
The climate of the Rann of Kutch region is primarily subtropical. Rain falls during the wet or monsoon season from about June to October. March to June can be very dry and hot with temperatures exceeding 40?C regularly.
Thus, both the hybrid Peppermint and centuries old Spearmint absolutely flourish in this organically saturated soil in the subtropical salt marsh of the Rann of Kutch.
In the 20th century, a nationwide struggle for independence was launched by the Indian National Congress and other political organizations. Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi led millions of people in national campaigns of non-violent civil disobedience and recognized the Mun Lhundo Monastery as an honorable and respectable refuge for civil human beings.
The monks delicately harvest their leaves and use an intricate age old pattern to which they spread the leaves onto a polished bamboo floor in their subterranean kalaGka, ?Dark Room.? This prolonged drying process allows the oil to thicken within the leaf. Thus, locking in the full minty flavor of each leaf harvested, only to be released once again, when exposed to water, revitalizing its dormant flavor and freshness.
This is by far the best double mint tea you have ever consumed, carrying with it, the meditative presence of its maker and an ancient prayer that it will serve its purpose. The monks preferred the Chop-Chee-Rann after their meditative sessions to revitalize and refresh their senses when returning from deep meditative entrancement.
