A herb, tasting similar to regular mint or peppermint, except with a more refreshing cool, sharp flavour. Spearmint-choc-chip icecream is divine. My favourite flavour of Tic Tac.

Spear"mint` (?), n. [So named from its spiry, not capitate, inflorescence. Dr. Prior.] Bot.

A species of mint (Mentha viridis) growing in moist soil. It vields an aromatic oil. See Mint, and Mentha.
