And explain why it is important
Speaking of plants, I know one which is important in my country and that is called mints. I guessit’s not a popular choice maybe when talking about plants. Mint is what people know as (俗知的) afragrant herb. I came to know this plant as my mother bought a pot of mint from the market andkept it on the balcony inside our kitchen. I liked it at first glance(第一眼) as it is of my favouritecolours, bright green. And it contains this delicious light and cool scent, which many peopleabsolutely love. The cooling taste of mint is just the thing after a heavy meal (大餐). However, I was hurt a bit the first time I tried to grab it as it has these leaves that are like saw. Then I becamecareful afterwards. The reason my mum put it there is because it decorates the room also it can beused for cooking. After a while, we found out that mints are really easy to grow and take care ofbecause they need little water. They grow better in warm weather. Ours has lived for many monthsso far. And with the bright color, it’s good for eyes as well. What’s more, it can be very useful as Isaid. Mint is mostly used as flavorings for foods, including candy and gum and for liqueur. Once we made a mint flavoured cake, which was well balanced between (平衡很好) freshness and sweetness.
The essential oils of mints are used as scents in perfume. Some species of mint arealso used in herbalmedicine.
