Flavor Profile:Soothing, earthy, lemon-mint flavor and aroma. Ingredients:100% Organic Lemon Balm.Certified Organic by:Quality Assurance International (QAI)
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis L.) is a lemon scented member of the mint family. A native to Southern Europe, it is a perennial plant that develops many branches and grows to a height of about two feet. The leaves are 2 to 3 inches long, ranging from oval to an almost heart shaped, shiny and wrinkled with scalloped edges. Small flowers, varying broadly in color, appear in late spring through midsummer. As a medicinal herb, lemon balm has mild sedative properties and can be used to ease the pain and discomfort associated with indigestion, reduce fever, and increase perspiration. Caffeine free.

Herbal teas with light, delicate blossoms or leaves require somewhat shorter steeping times and lower temperatures than other more hearty herbs. We recommend using 2 teaspoons of leaf per 8oz of near boiling water (180 to 200 F) and steeping 3 to 5 minutes. This provides a sweeter, better tasting brew while repeated infusions allow you to extract all the nutritional and medicinal benefits from the herb.
Herbal teas can be brewed in porcelain, ceramic, glass, or stainless steel but never in aluminum or other harmful materials. Be sure to cover the cup or teapot while steeping to prevent the loss of fragrant essential oils and other therapeutic and nutritional elements.
