About Peppermint Leaves
Peppermint, also known as M. Balsamea Wild, is a flowering perennial hybrid, cross-combining Water Mint and Spearmint. Indigenous to Europe, it is now found throughout the globe.
Sought after for its zesty taste and powerful aroma due to a high Menthol content, Peppermint is often used in confectionery treats as well as teas and candies. It is also popular in toothpastes and chewing gums.
