Indian mint

Indian mint (satureja douglasii)

Leaves can be used for tea and the label says as a medicinal herb. It smells very nice.

Have you tried Indian mint tea? Sounds nice. Love the smell of mint in the garden - that and the smell of basil!

Tastes just like its scent. Sweet, scented and minty . Just as pleasant hot or cold.

Indians use just milk to make their tea like we would make milky coffee, and have it very sweet too.

I know this as I use to rent room off them when I was courting years ago, in a house that they too lived in too, they rent the bedrooms out, they call it cha bin how its pronounce it.

So that's where cha comes from when we say we want a cuppa cha. Thanks for the info Morgana I tried it last night and it was strangely nice.

Hb, I bought a couple of these plants today for manger troughs. Having seen pics of them on-line they appear to grow quite big! Can you tell me how big your one grew?
