There are many species of mint with many characteristics.
German spearmint (Mentha crispata) is known by the tea; peppermint (Mentha piperita) is the taste of candy and toothpaste; while water mint (Mentha aquatica) taste like menthol; and spearmint (Mentha spicata) flavours chewing-gum.
Usage: As a mint sauce with lamb; added to potatoes; in drinks; in herb vinegar. The English put mint over all kind of food, like peas.http://www.xs4all.nl/~margjos/nlmunt.htm
