Talking about Chocolate Mint (Mentha x piperita 'Chocolate') on February 23, gardengus wrote:

This is my favorite of the mints I grow for tea, Like all mints, it spreads and unless you have a large garden space to dedicate to this plant, it is best grown in a container.
Easy to harvest and dry. It makes a very flavorful and aromatic tea. I also use the cold tea as a refreshing hair rinse on hot days. Feels as great on the scalp as the tea feels on the tongue.

Like most mints, this is a vigorous grower and survives quite a bit of abuse. Very easy to start from cuttings, and this is the preferred propagation method, as Mentha x piperita is a sterile hybrid, and therefore will not set viable seeds.

Flavor is sweet and a little bit "dark," but definitely not reminiscent of chocolate. The name likely comes from the brown color of the stems more than from the flavor profile.

Edible, famine food.

Like all mints, tends to be invasive. We grow ours in large containers and cut back flowers before any seed drops.
Talking about Spearmint (Mentha spicata) on March 3, robertduval14 wrote:

Great in teas. If you plant it outside, watch out...it can spread quite rapidly.

This is the only native species of Mentha found in the US.
Talking about Aquatic Mint (Mentha aquatica) on December 30, SongofJoy wrote:

This plant hybridizes with Mentha spicata (Spearmint) to produce Mentha × piperita (Peppermint), a sterile hybrid; it hybrizes with Mentha suaveolens (Apple Mint) to produce Mentha × suavis; with Mentha arvensis (Corn Mint) to produce Mentha × verticillata; and with both M. arvensis and M. spicata to give the tri-species hybrid Mentha × smithiana.

Harvesting of mint leaves can be done any time. Fresh mint leaves can be stored up to a couple of days in plastic bags in the refrigerator. Fresh mint leaves can also be frozen in ice cube trays. Dried mint leaves should be stored in an airtight container placed in a cool, dark, dry area.

Mints are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Buff Ermine.

Mints are said to make good companion plants, repelling pest insects and attracting beneficial ones. Mint oil is also used as an environmentally-friendly insecticide and is reported to kill some common pests like wasps, hornets, ants, and cockroaches.

Mints are susceptible to whitefly and aphids.

Bruise the leaves and put them in a pitcher of ice water for a refreshing drink or mix Apple Mint and Chamomile. Fresh or dried Apple Mint leaves can be used to make a delicious Apple Mint Jelly. Fresh leaves can also be used as a garnish and in salads.

Easy to grow, but can be invasive. Consider growing Apple Mint in a container or raised bed.
