There are many varieties of mint. Spearmint and peppermint are two common varieties. Mint is a cooling herb, with a sweet taste and a pungent aftertaste.
Most varieties of mint are pacifying for all three doshas, and especially helpful for balancing Pitta. Mint is good for digestion as well as for respiratory system health. Its delicious flavor is found in many Maharishi AyurVeda herbal teas.
