Lemon Balm Melissa officinalis

Back

Otherwise known as balm mint, Lemon Balm is a close relative of Mint but with leaves that have a gentle lemon scent.

Plants grow up to 150cm tall which in summer produce beautiful white flowers full of nectar for bees.

The leaves have traditionally been used to keep mosquitoes at bay by rubbing them on the skin.

We take this beautiful, gentle lemonyness and drizzle it through some of our most delicious herbal teas - we hope you enjoy it.
