Grows to 3 ft Invasive Makes great mojitos , im told Very intense odor and flavor. Can make a strong tea or spearmint type syrup. Much better flavor than spearmint To make a syrup, use coffee maker Stuff the glass bottom full of leaves, pour water through the coffee maker with the bottom burner on. Let the tea steep for ten to twenty minutes. Remove leaves or pour off green liquid and sweeten with sugar until saturated. (will not dissolve any more sugar) Store in refrigerator for several weeks. Add to colas, teas lamb dishes etc.
