Mint, Spearmint, Mentha spicata, ‘Scotch Spearmint’
DESCRIPTION AND CULTURE: Spearmint is an aggressively spreading perennial, completely hardy and likes wet places.
This is a selection I made of the best flavored spearmint from my 39 years of herb collecting. The flavor is refreshing- not pungent. The color is mid green. You will favor this spearmint 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. Spearmint is a lighter mint than peppermint, so is preferred by some.
