The FruitGuys are fans of Menthe the Mint

Persephone turned the little Menthe into a plant, but you have to wonder who has the last laugh now. While the Greek gods drama has become the fabric of classic narratives, mint has propagated all around the world. Delightfully refreshing, there are some 25 species and 100 varieties, such as spearmint and peppermint, which calm tummies and tempers. Catmint is the gateway mint for our feline friends. So many mints, so little time! Experience the wonderful scent of the fresh Peppermint Bergamot in your TakeHome case.

Peppermint Bergamot has a hint of the citrus scent used in Earl Grey tea but is unrelated to the Bergamot orange. This member of the mint family can be made into tea from the fresh stem or dried leaf. The grower Jesse Kuhn of Marin Roots in Petaluma (Sonoma County) prepares it as a “sun tea.” Simply put a few stems in a jar with good water and place in the sun for a few hours, then enjoy. Or tear the leaves into tiny bits as a refreshing garnish to couscous or tabouleh.
