I just picked up 17 free mojito mint plants in healthy 4 inch pots. I had not heard of this before so had to try a piece. Its quite tangy.

Has anyone used this before?

    I had some in my garden for a few years. In my experience it is quite minty. I tried some in one of my trials on making mint sauce with different flavours of mint. It ranked pretty highly compared to some but nothing beat the flavour of spearmint for this. Makes a nice tea. Its flavour would stand up well for making mint jelly.

    Be careful where you plant it. I found it was one of the more invasive mints. 17 is a lot of plants. You might want to find other homes for some of them. But if you keep them all it might be the beginnings of a mint tea farm. :)

    @marjstratton It was new to me too so that is why I picked it up. I hear when its dried it does not lose much of its flavor and its known for being used in a popular drink.
