Two Mints on my allotment presently. How many mints are there? 7,500. Yes. The Mint Family Lamiaceae includes mints, sage, lavender, basil, thymes. Mints alone have 600 varieties including peppermint, spearmint, chocolate, orange, apple, liquorice, ginger etc.

Mint the herb of hospitality. Makes a good tea. Peppermint is good for the digestion. And anti-inflammatory for the lungs. Topical.

And the wonderful smell. Mint sauce. Mint on potatoes.
