From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    (Gr. heduosmon, i.e., "having a sweet smell"), one of the garden
    herbs of which the Pharisees paid tithes (Matt. 23:23; Luke
    11:42). It belongs to the labiate family of plants. The species
    most common in Syria is the Mentha sylvestris, the wild mint,
    which grows much larger than the garden mint (M. sativa). It was
    much used in domestic economy as a condiment, and also as a
    medicine. The paying of tithes of mint was in accordance with
    the Mosiac law (Deut. 14:22), but the error of the Pharisees lay
    in their being more careful about this little matter of the mint
    than about weightier matters.
