Glacial mint for sale in a 14 cm pot is a variety of mint characterized by an extremely fresh and minty flavour.

Ice mint is a perennial herbaceous plant that grows to a height of about 30-90 centimetres. It has erect and branched stems, with oval or lanceolate leaves.

Ice mint leaves are bright green and often have serrated edges. When crushed or rubbed between the fingers, they release a strong minty aroma reminiscent of ice or menthol. Ice mint flowers are small and can range from white to pale pink or purple. They are gathered in terminal ears and appear during the summer. Pollinating insects, such as bees, are attracted to these flowers. The aroma of glacial mint is dominated by very intense and fresh mentholated notes. Its flavor is equally strong and can leave a cold sensation in the mouth, similar to that of a mint. Glacial mint is used in cooking to flavor a variety of dishes, including desserts, cocktails, teas and refreshing drinks. It is often used to add a touch of minty freshness to summer dishes. Glacial mint is known for its refreshing properties and can be used to relieve symptoms of nasal congestion or headaches. Its leaves can be used to prepare digestive herbal teas.

Ice mint grows well in well-drained, sunny or partially shaded soil. However, like many mint plants, it can be invasive and spread quickly, so it is often grown in containers or areas where it can be contained.
