Spearmint (Mentha Spicata) is an herb from the mint family. It got its name from the shape of the leaves, the pointed spear-like tips and serrated edges.

The flavor is often described as cool and refreshing.

Spearmint is used to extract spearmint oil which is used in alternative medicine. Dried leaves make a nice herbal tea.
