Our fresh mint is characterized by the leaf size, smell and taste. Mentha spicata, formerly known as mentha viridis is the best strain grown from seed. Fresh Mint is an exceptionally fragrant and ornamental plant, in addition to its many other uses is also extremely attractive to butterflies and bees and makes a wonderful addition to any wildlife garden.
The flavour of mint goes well with many savoury ingredients, especially vegetables. We eat spearmint with lamb, usually made into mint sauce, as it helps digest the fatty nature of the meat. Its digestive qualities are similar to peppermint but not as strong. On the sweet side, the taste goes particularly well with chocolate and if mint is combined with rum, carbonated water, lime and sugar you can make the popular alcoholic beverage Mojito and additionally, on the culture side, an infusion of mint is the “national beverage” in Morocco and Tunisia.
Allergies: Mint plants contain an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent called rosmarinic acid.
Common cold: Mint contains menthol, a natural aromatic decongestant that may help to break up phlegm and mucus, making it easier to expel.
Menthol also has a cooling effect and can help relieve a sore throat, especially when combined with tea.
Indigestion: Mint is a calming and soothing herb that has been used for thousands of years to aid with upset stomach or indigestion. Mint is thought to increase bile secretion and encourage bile flow, which helps to speed and ease digestion (and which may also support healthy cholesterol levels).
