12/29/07 - Black Mitcham Mints

We admit that the item in this picture does not look like much. It is a chocolate covered Black Mitcham mint patty. Black Mitcham is a cultivar of mint that had fallen out of cultivation some years back, but has recently been revived. Naturally, we had to try some, and we were quite impressed. Black Mitcham is a very strong mint, with a hearty green note. It's nothing like spearmint, which we don't really like. Rather, it is extremely refreshing and hearty. That brown disk may not look like much, but it may be the best peppermint patty anywhere.

If you want to try some, you can get them from Chelsea Market Baskets.
