Chocolate Mint is not just a intriguing name - it really does have a fragrance and taste that's a lot like Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies. Chocolate Mint makes a great addition to hot chocolate, ice cream or just pour some hot water over the leaves for a fresh cup of chocolate mint tea.
Mint is known to help with digestion, as are most mints. Having a cup of chocolate mint tea after a meal is a good way to enjoy mint and help your body out at the same time.
Use Chocolate Mint leaves dried for use in cakes, cookies or quick breads. Make a sweet tea gift out of a package of dried Chocolate Mint leaves.
As with all mint, keep it to a pot or container, unless you want it to take over spaces and grow through cracks.
We have Chocolate Mint plants along with many other types available at the Herbary (open Fri-Sun 10-5pm) and at the Farmers Markets.
