Tea Nom

We didn’t realize until this summer that we have an amazing amount of bee balm growing in our yard. We looked it up and it’s supposed to make delicious tea.

We experimented with it the other day and the Internet wasn’t wrong. Bee balm is in the mint family so our flower tea tasted like peppermint and summer. We are drying some for winter:

In other tea news, a few weeks back we picked linden flower. Now that they are dry we steeped them in hot water — they make a sweet, light tea. Our tea experiments have been pretty delicious this year.
We foraged the flowers from the linden trees near our house, and now that they're dry they make delicious tea.
