As much as I like other herbs, such as rosemary, basil, thyme, etc. my favorite is mint. Yes, I know it has a vicious habit of taking over herb gardens, but I can't bring myself to mind too much. Mint tea is my favorite and I have wonderful memories of going outside to my grandmother's herb garden and picking mint so she could make me tea. I'd then pull up a chair as she'd talk to me as she moved around the kitchen. As I got older, she'd have me do it, patiently teaching me. And somehow what began as a simple request always turned into a wonderful conversation where I learned, laughed, and grew. I loved those moments and I still treasure them today.
