Mint is a very aggressive perennial herb, but I just can’t help myself. I have two patches of chocolate mint (one in the garden and one in a pot), a patch of spearmint, and one clump or orange mint. I plan on adding pineapple mint next year. I use mint fresh in salads or teas, or sometimes I just add a sprig to my water for some added flavour. Come the end of summer, I harvest all my mint, dry it and enjoy mint tea all winter long. Right now, we enjoy a pot of chocolate mint tea most evenings. We just pick a sprig, pour boiling water over it and voila: chocolate mint tea. Some people allow their mint to spread into their lawn so that they can enjoy a minty fragrance when they cut the lawn. Others add it to homemade ice cream.
Do you grow mint in your garden? If so, how do you use your mint?
