This chocolate mint is our absolute favorite for making tea.  It tastes just like an Andes thin mint!  We've selected for strength and sweetness of taste, so this chocolate mint will blow your mind.  We love it so much, we planted a giant patch of it under our fruit trees!

In the winter, it will go dormant, but will pop right back up in spring and continue to grow until first frost. 

Why We Love It

Here are some of the reasons why we love this amazing chocolate mint...

1) DELICIOUS TEA - This is our favorite tea in the house!  Combine it with a touch of maple syrup and a splash of milk for an amazing treat.  We've included our recipe below.

2) LUSH GROUNDCOVER - This plant creates a dense, mat of lush green growth that grows with ease.

3)  IMPROVES DIGESTION & COOLS THE BODY - Mint relieves indigestion and has a cooling energy for the body.
