Mint Tea

In Greek mythology, Minthe, a beautiful water nymph had an affair with Hades, the god of the Underworld.

Persephone, the wife of Hades changed Minthe into the mint plant in revenge.

There are many mint species and they have a long history as medicinal plants, used to treat all kinds of stomach problems, nausea and other ailments.

Mint tea is mostly drank because of the good taste and lovely herbal aroma, but also to calm an upset stomach or… if you are thinking of having an illicit affair with a god… ;-)

And yet, they come together to create a conscious being, who can ask the question “what is an atom?” “
