Leaves add peppermint-patty flavour to teas, ice cream, and iced drinks. This variety is sultry and refreshingly pungent as the name suggests. A delectably sweet topping for fruit and ice cream alike, also great for hot tea. We recommend planting in containers to prevent these vigorous plants from becoming invasive.
