One of the ‘nicest’ spices in the world, everything from mint’s flavour to its aroma is welcoming. It has long been seen as a symbol of wisdom and hospitality, where religious congregations have sprinkled mint water in sacred places. Both the Romans and Greeks used to rub their tables with mint prior to the arrival of a guest in the house. Spreading further through these ancient European spice traders, mint made its way to Britain through mint sauce brought by the Romans. Similarly, it was the Europeans travelling on the historic voyage Mayflower that migrated with the spice to America.In the east the Japanese have made consistent use of distilled peppermint oil for hundreds of years, even extracting menthol from it.
