Reason to Love
Lemon balm is just one of those amiable, easy-to-love plants. A member of the mint family, with broad leaves and a pleasing lemony scent, lemon balm has a genial nature that can best be described as kind. It’s no wonder that people throughout Europe have been cultivating and using it for thousands of years both to support digestion and to calm a jangled nervous system.* Named Melissa from the Greek word for “honey” because bees are wildly attracted to it, we can’t think of a nicer, more pleasing herbal tea.
Pleasantly mild herbal taste, with subtle citrus notes.
Native to Southern Europe, some of our favorite organic lemon balm comes from a farming cooperative in and around the German Rhine Valley. Run by a woman whose parents were herb farmers, the cooperative was established in 1987. Not only are these the kind of people we want to work with, we think they grow simply the best lemon balm there is. You don't have to take our word for it, though. Subtle and mild, its greatness is perfectly balanced pleasantness and its soothing effects on your system.
