Fresh From Origin
Spearmint has been used by humans for thousands of years. Its name comes from the spear-like tips at the ends of its serrated leaves, though it is also known by nicknames like common mint, garden mint, or lamb mint. Like many mint plants, it contains menthol in its leaves, though not as much as is found in its hybridized descendant peppermint. Because of its milder flavor, spearmint is popular in both food and drinks, including lamb dishes, cocktails, and Moroccan mint tea, which is a social tea made with spearmint, gunpowder tea, and sugar.
