The leaves are small and measure up to 2 centimeters in length. Leaves and sprigs of Berries and Cream mint are most often harvested when the plant is young, as older portions of the plant may lose flavor. In the late summer, Berries and Cream mint will produce spikes of light purple flowers. The leafy herb has a berry-like aroma combined with the scent of menthol and a hint of citrus. The smell is not overly intense, and neither is the flavor.
