Using Taquito I can load the storage from a smart contract. This storage contains a map called token_info. If I call token_info.get('symbol'), I get a hex string of "4d494e". How do I convert this hex string to the ASCII string "MIN"?

I would prefer doing this conversion using the Taquito JavaScript library.

The bytes2Char function from the @taquito/utils package will convert these bytes to a string. The char2bytes is the counterpart that does the reverse.
