Here is what Richter's has to say about this mint:
"Yes, this does have oregano and thyme in it; but it is not simply the sum total of those two herbs -- it's something more. Breeder Jim Westerfield says that this mint has so much culinary potential "it's actually scary!" In fact, he is already featuring it in dishes created at his award-winning inn, The Westerfield House near St. Louis."
