Ezo Gelin Corbasi (Turkish spicy red lentil soup)

This recipe calls for dried mint but they do not specify if it's peppermint or spearmint or other. (1) What type of mint does the authentic Turkish recipe call for? (2) Are there other mints other than peppermint and spearmint?

  1. I always use herbal mint tea in my Turkish recipes that call for dried mint, if that is helpful. They are usually cheaper and better tasting than the spices. I think it is dried spearmint.
