Mint Food Quotes

"As for the garden of mint, the very smell of it alone recovers and refreshes our spirits, as the taste stirs up our appetite for meat,"



“Plant a little mint, Madame, then step out of the way so you don't get hurt!”

British gardener


“I must....descant a little upon the mint-julep, as it is, with the thermometer at 100 degrees F., one of the most delightful and insinuating potations that ever was invented, and may be drunk with equal satisfaction when the thermometer is as low as 70 degrees.”

Captain Frederick Marryat
His diary while traveling in the South (1838)


"....that the mounds of ices, and the bowls of mint-julep and sherry cobbler they make in these latitudes, are refreshments never to be thought of afterwards, in summer, by those who would preserve contented minds."

Charles Dickens, while traveling in America (1842)
