Peppermint is generally a sweet flavor imparting a cool sensation to the mouth but with a stronger menthol taste.
Mint combines well with many vegetables such as new potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, and peas. A few leaves give refreshment to green salads and dressings. Peppermint is more commonly used in desserts, adding fresh flavor to fruits, ices and sherberts. Also great to steep for a Hot or Cold Tea with an invigorating lift.
