Description

An East Asian herb from the mint family. The Chinese mint shrub has a pleasantly exotic, slightly minty aroma. The bushy growing plant with beautiful flowers, which bloom until late autumn, is perennial, even though its above.ground parts freeze in
winter to regrow in the following year. The plant can be used as a perennial ornamental as well as a spice plant.

It is very good as a tea-herb and represents a good alternative to peppermint. In the kitchen it can also be used just like mint. The aroma is minty, with a hint of citrus and cumin, which makes it very suitable for many Asian wok dishes and soups. In Japan this minty labiate is highly regarded as a cure for hangovers.
