Fresh mint leaves

About mint Edit

Mint (Mentha), is a genus of strongly-scented herbs, some of which are used for flavouring. The term may refer to any of the following plants:

  • Mint
    • Peppermint
    • Spearmint (Mentha spicata)
  • Mint sage (Salvia dorrii)
  • Brazilian mint (Hyptis crenata)

It can be found either in fresh or dried form. A general rule of thumb is that 1 Tablespoon fresh = 1 teaspoon dried (three times as much fresh as dried).
