Mint Bunch

Mint refers to a number of species and their hybrids in the genus Mentha.  Because their hybrids occur naturally, Mentha species are not clearly distinct, and the specific number of agreed-upon species varies.

Mints typically have a warm taste with a cool sensation afterwards.  Minty flavor comes from a variety of compounds including menthol, pulegone, and R-carvone.
