Nepitella, also known as Calamint, is a member of the mint family. This traditional Italian herb grows wild in Tuscany, and its flavor is complex: refreshingly minty, with savory undertones of basil and oregano. Nepitella's unique flavor makes it an enjoyable and versatile addition to your home's herb garden.
