I used 5 leaves of fresh lemon balm and 5 of fresh peppermint. That was really good. I love the taste of the mint. Very refreshing. I put the leaves in my cup and pour the boiling water on top. And I let them in the water while drinking. This was beautiful. No photo cause I was at work. Thanks Sharon. Made for 123 hit wonders.
Very nice. I had a terrible headache today that I could not shake so I tried this. Honestly, I don't know if it was the tea or a nap that made me feel better, but I am willing to credit the tea. ZWT3
A lovely way to end a dinner. Mint and lemon balm is great for digestion and fresh breath. I made it with fresh grown out of my garden.
