The Lemon Balm plant [Melissa officinalis] produces highly aromatic leaves that can be added to a variety of dishes as well as brewed into a herbal tea.
A herbal infusion of Lemon Balm leaves is said to help relieve the symptoms of catarrh, colds and headaches. At the very least the scent and taste of Lemon Balm tea provides a soothing yet refreshing drink.
For a less full-on lemony infusion, why not try blending a little Lemon Balm with other herbs such as Peppermint, Nettle or Raspberry Leaf to soften the overall flavour. To add a natural sweetness to an infusion, shred a few pieces of Liquorice Root into the pot when brewing.
