The generic name of mint - «Mentha» - is derived from ancient Greek mythology. The ancient Greeks explained the appearance of mint of the beautiful legend of the innocent and beautiful nymph Mente, which Persephone, Pluto's jealous wife, in a fit of jealousy turned into a nondescript plant. Pluto could not remove the spell from the nymph, but he was able to give the plant a subtle, gentle, cool flavor and the ability to excite the senses.
