“As for the garden of mint, the very smell of it alone recovers and refreshes our spirits, as the taste stirs up our appetite…” Pliny.

For centuries mint has been considered an aphrodisiac. Aristotle advised Alexander the Great to ban his soldiers for drinking mint tea during campaigns because he believed it to be an aphrodisiac.
