Spearmint Leaf's botanical name in Latin is Mentha spicata. The familiar scent of Spearmint is released from the leaves when they are crushed. Mentha spicata tea is widely used in cooking, and might be found as an ingredient in ethnic dishes such as Greek Stuffed Grape leaves, where it is used to flavor the rice and meat filling. It is also fantastic added to Tunisian Chickpea Soup as a bright contrasting flavoring to the hearty garbanzo beans.
