Mint, Peppermint, Mentha piperita ‘Blue Balsam’
DESCRIPTION AND CULTURE: Peppermint is an aggressively spreading perennial, completely hardy and likes wet places.
This is a selection I made of the best flavored peppermint from my 39 years of herb collecting. The flavor is fresh and not pungent. The color is deep and rich. You will favor this peppermint out of all the rest!
PART USED: above ground portion
FUNCTION: great flavor for teas. Use mints as a base for teas to mask the flavor of more medicinal tasting herbs and roots. Helpful after meals to assist a healthy digestive system.
