Superior Licorice Mint
Agastache rugosa. Oh my gosh you guys. This one is definitely my favorite! No, really. On the usefulness scale, agastache is one of my favorite additions to the garden. Keep it handy to use as a tea herb. The leaves are minty sweet anise flavored. The flower spikes are said to be blue but I call them purple. The pollinators call them heaven. So many pollinators! And, it's a perennial, so it will return again next summer!
Try a fresh leaf tea (not dried) and your life will not be the same! Just steep leaves in hot water (to desired flavor) and you will be floored by the intense flavor. Dry some leaves near the end of the season to put up for the winter months!
