Lemon Balm and Mint Tea Recipe:
- 1 tablespoon fresh Lemon Balm leaves (Melissa officinalis)
- 1 tablespoon fresh Mint leaves. Spearmint (Mentha spicata) or peppermint (Mentha × piperita) can be used.
- 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
- 2 cups hot water
- Lemon wedge (optional).
Gather Your Ingredients:
Collect fresh Lemon Balm leaves and Mint leaves. You can use tea bags if you don’t have fresh herbs.
Prepare the Herbs:
If using fresh herbs, wash them thoroughly and pat them dry. Strip the leaves from the stems and roughly chop them for better flavor extraction.
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. You can use a kettle, microwave, or stovetop.
Place the Herbs in a Teapot or Mug
Place the fresh Lemon Balm and Mint leaves at the bottom if you’re using a teapot. If using teabags, put one teabag of Lemon Balm and one teabag of Mint in your mug.
Pour Hot Water
Pour the hot water over the herbs in the teapot or directly into the mug with the teabags.
Steep the Tea
Let the herbs steep in hot water for about 5 to 7 minutes. This allows the flavors to infuse into the water. You can steep it longer if you prefer a more robust flavor.
Strain or Remove Teabags
Using fresh herbs, use a filter to separate the leaves from the liquid. If you use tea bags, remove them from the mug.
If you like your tea on the sweeter side, add a teaspoon of honey and stir until it dissolves. Adjust the sweetness to your preference.
Serve and Enjoy
Pour the Lemon Balm and Mint tea into your favorite cup. Take a moment to inhale the aromatic steam and savor the refreshing flavor.
For a decorative touch, garnish your tea with a fresh Mint sprig or a lemon slice.
