Lemon Mint Tea

Monarda citriodora
Lemon-mint scent foliage with edible, white to pink flowers in summer.  Used in herbal teas, jellies, sauces for lamb dishes, and iced drinks. Also used as a garnish or candied.

It’s easy to make herbal tea and the flavor combinations are endless. Mix several herbs together for your own special blend or stick with your favorite herb. Tear 1 to 2 tablespoons of fresh leaves into pieces and place in a teapot. Pour boiling water over herbs; gently bruise herbs with back of spoon to release the oils. Let steep for 5-10 minutes, strain, pour, sweeten and enjoy.
