Also known as black Peruvian mint or huacatay, this fresh mint variety offers up pungent aroma and flavor with crunchy and succulent texture. Leaves of the black mint are thin and dark with pronounced ridges. This variety is sharper than traditional mint and can be described as cool and clean.

Dried and fresh leaves can be used as a seasoning, and also makes a nice tea. Traditionally it is turned into a paste and used in local peruviuan dishes such as a potato dish called ocopa. It has a unique aroma and flavour best described as a mix of mint, aniseed and citrus. The flavor and aroma are strong, with intense notes of sweet basil, tarragon and lime.
