Blackcurrant Mint Plants are the perfect example of herb plants that will really engage and excite your senses within your kitchen garden. Exactly as the name might suggest, this plant combines minty freshness with a sweet, subtle Blackcurrant tasting strangely similar to the Ribena drink we all know and love. 

The most striking feature of Blackcurrant Mint is its rich, green foliage with a splash of blackcurrant purple. The leaves are smooth, lance-shaped, and emit a potent minty fragrance when crushed. This variety grows in a bushy yet compact manner, making it a practical choice for container gardening or as an attractive addition to herb gardens.

This is a variety of mint that will grow quickly, spreading and filling the pot or herb bed that it is growing within, providing you with an abundance of fresh foliage to use in the kitchen.  For this reason it might be a good idea to keep this one contained unless you have an area which you don't mind being entirely overrun with sweet, fruity yet minty freshness. But don't worry, we've got a whole piece on how to grow mint which will help you get the very best from your plants.

Working fantastically well in desserts, ice cream and teas, this herb is one you'll head out into the garden to pick time and time again. Looking for more ideas for your homegrown herbal tea collection? Take a look below!
