I have had chocolate mint growing in the garden for a while now and not really given it a second thought until today. Whilst contemplating the pot I had so assiduously watered for the past 3 years I wondered how it would go in a chocolaty soft sort of coffee. Grabbed 3 or 4 leaves..Inside I crushed them up a bit, poured my double shot onto them, then added water (about 200ml) for the strong Americano with a splash double cream (I now have cream instead of milk for weight control). I let it steep for a few minutes, removed the leaves and then added the cream. Surprisingly good, I think I have finally found a use for this leaf and I am looking forward to trying it with other coffees. https://www.victoriananursery.co.uk/Mint_Plant__Chocolate_Mint/ I think I got my plant from RHS Wisley shop down the road from me. P.S. It's suffered through years of neglect, what's the bettting it dies now I have found a good use for it
