Lemon balm is in full bloom by Litha, so it's a perfect opportunity to make a pitcher of cool lemon balm tea! Brew this up in your kitchen, and serve it over ice.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 2 Cups lemon balm leaves, fresh
- Honey or other sweetener
Bring 2 quarts water to a boil, and add the leaves. Reduce heat and allow to steep for about 15 minutes. Strain leaves out, and then add honey or other sweetener to taste. If the tea is too strong, add a bit of water to thin it out. Pour into an ice-filled pitcher and serve. You may want to add a sprig of mint for garnish.
