"I really hope that my excitement about some of these herbs comes through in these descriptions. Because we genuinely LOVE sharing these varieties with you. This one REALLY is special.
Strawberry Mint was a relative newcomer a few years back. We have been growing and selling this variety for a few years now and people’s reaction to this smell just doesn’t get old. As you brush the leaves you really do get a strong aroma of Strawberry from the leaf. It’s not subtle it really does smell strongly of Strawberry. I think that is SO cool.
On a practical level this is fantastic in the kitchen. Strawberry Mint is perfect for adding as a topping for deserts of putting into fruit cocktails. It can be used to make a delicious fruity herbal tea. And of course COCKTAILS. Its is very important to experiment thoroughly in it’s cocktail applications. You should do that this summer!
