Peppermint no longer tastes like peppermint?
Hi guys! I've got a bit of an issue with my new peppermint plant. I bought it about a week or more ago and potted it in a Miracle Grow potting mix. It's in the house now sitting next to the window and I've started to notice the peppermint smell decreasing. Rubbing my hand violently on the leaves no longer makes a peppermint smell, it's more of a chemical smell than anything. My chocolate mint, however all I have to do is run my hand through it and it will smell like it everywhere. So, we tried to taste the peppermint leaves and my girlfriend describes the taste similar to alcohol with a bit of minty aftertaste. Any ideas what could be going on?
