Calamint or Mountain Mint (locally called Poleo Canario on the Canary islands) are usually semi-perennials or semi-woody perennials. Several species have a pleasant, very strong, yet smooth and rich spearmint flavor. Fresh or dried leaves are used to prepare healthy "infusiones", i.e. herbal teas. One teaspoon of leaves and flower buds is sufficient to prepare 1l of tea. Enjoy either pure or sweetened with sugar. Easily cultivated in any humus rich, yet well drained soil in a sunny spot. Fully hardy in Central Europe in a protected spot.
Sow on any well drained soil in full sun. Cover its fine seeds only slightly, keep at a minimum of some 15°C.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
