Spearmint is a type of mint characterized by pointed leaf tips. It’s most often used dried as a refreshing herbal tea with healing properties. You can also use the leaves fresh or frozen, or preserve them in salt, sugar, sugar syrup, alcohol, or oil.

The Bible records that the ancient Pharisees paid tithes to their temple in anise, cumin, and spearmint. The sixteenth-century English herbalist Gerard quotes the Roman historian Pliny as saying, “The smell of Mint does stir up the minde and the taste to a greedy desire of meate.”

Fresh spearmint leaves are an ingredient in several mixed drinks, such as the mojito and mint julep. Sweet tea, iced and flavored with spearmint, is a summer tradition in the Southern United States. Spearmint’s aromatic oil, referred to as oil of spearmint, flavors toothpaste and candy, and is sometimes added to shampoos and soaps. Spearmint oil is also an effective non-toxic method of repelling moths and fleas.

  • Spearmint is a rich source of many vitamins, phytonutrients, and antioxidants, including vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin C, folates, vitamin B-6, riboflavin, and thiamin. It also contains essential minerals such as potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium. Other chemical compounds in spearmint are calming and energizing.
  • Spearmint tea is an excellent remedy for minor ailments such as headaches, nervous strain, fatigue and stress, as well as for respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, and respiratory infections. It also can help with digestive problems, including nausea, flatulence, and hiccups, as it relaxes the stomach muscles.

Wash spearmint leaves in clean running water, pat dry with paper towels, and store in the refrigerator; use as soon as possible. To dry for teas, spread leaves on a plastic sheet and allow to dry in the shade, then store in an airtight container away from sunlight.

Here are some serving tips:

  • Add fresh leaves, either chopped or ground, to fruit or vegetable salads.
  • Make mint sauce by grinding fresh mint leaves and mixing with yogurt, cumin, and little salt..
  • Use oil of spearmint to flavor ice creams, jams, cakes, jelly, etc.
  • Use the herb in cooking, in small amounts, chopped or ground; add to recipes at the final stages of cooking to retain flavor and taste.
