Have any of you tried pineapple mint? It’s the prettiest one growing by the back door; ruffly green leaves with creamy white edges. But I still can’t decide what it really tastes like. Stuffed a jar full in the fridge with one decaf Red Rose bag to make it tea-y, left it overnight. It’s gentle and satisfying, but I can’t determine if it’s “pineapple” or “unclassified somewhat citrusy” mint. Ah well, it was lovely to come home to a gentle, quiet cup of anything after a mind-blowingly plate-juggling workday.

Sounds yummy!

I can’t get my pineapple mint to thrive. :( It’s such a prissy little plant. My chocolate mint on the other hand…send help!

Our chocolate mint “kraken” experiment (routing the tentacles to another pot) succeeded beyond expectations. Want some more? ;)

I could probably make a ton more chocolate mints all by myself, thanks. :)
I had to trim the thing down so I ended up making a tea so strong it was like gargling mouthwash. This was very convenient as we had just run out of Listerine. :D Great for diluting into straight greens too. :)

Pretty sure mint would be classified as a weed if it didn’t taste so good. Keeping it locked up in a pot is about the only way to contain it, and even that won’t work if a branch reaches the ground.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
