Description

Its delectable flavour evokes images of vine-covered verandas, summer gardens and bees waltzing through a fresh and fragrant breeze.

What is Lemon Balm Tea?

Lemon Balm Loose Leaf Tea (Melissa officinalis) comes from a herbaceous perennial plant of the Lamiaceae (mint) family. The name derives from its citrus-like characteristics, despite not being a relative. Other terms associated with it include Balm, Common Balm and Balm Mint. Reaching two feet high, the south-central European plant consists of a short root and stem square with multiple branches.

These branches produce joint pairs of broadly ovate or heart-shaped, crenate or toothed leaves, which, in turn, exude a potent lemony aroma when bruised. Additionally, it grows white or yellowish flowers that bloom in small bunches from June to October. Interestingly, it contains several chemical compounds similar to bee pheromones, making it an attractive choice for the beloved insects.  

What Does Lemon Balm Tea Taste Like?

The botanical name “Melissa” is from the Greek word “honeybee”. The word “balm” is a variation of “Balsam”, a sweet and aromatic substance. Such descriptions allude to its unique and wholesome taste when drinking Lemon Balm Tea. Expect a distinct citrus kick upon the first sip with bold herbaceous overtones and earthy undertones. Connoisseurs might even discern notes of mint. 

Lemon Balm Tea Caffeine

Caffeine is a stimulating chemical compound that, in reality, needs little introduction other than to say that it helps people out of bed in the morning. Its ability to boost one’s energy is world-renowned. But does Lemon Balm Tea have caffeine? The simple answer is no. This is because it contains no leaves from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant and, as a result, isn’t “Tea” in the conventional sense. 

 How to Make Lemon Balm Tea

  1. Put Lemon Balm Leaf Tea in a Tea Filter or Infuser.

  2. Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.

  3. Pour freshly boiled water into the cup.

  4. Let it infuse for 5 to 10 minutes. 

How to Serve: Consider a slice of lemon for extra fruitiness. Another option is to bring out the sweetness with a dollop of honey. Alternatively, serve without accompaniments. 

Tasting Notes: Imparts a flavour reminiscent of the succulent citrus fruit with herbaceous hints.
