not the best pic, but can anyone help identify this mint? it came from pennsylvania, where it can be found in the wild. it tastes and smells only of mint with no fruity or chocolate undertones. we've always just called it 'mint tea'. any help would be appreciated, thanks. (already posted it to the name that plant forum.)

It is probably a hybrid of Mentha longifolia and Mentha suaveolens, often sold as Mentha x rotundifolia or Mentha x villosa. It could be Mentha villosa var alopecurioides, commonly called Bowles mint.
