A MEDICAL MEDIUM RECIPE FOR LEMON BALM TEA
This lemon balm tea is soothing and gentle. The lemony taste does not overpower the subtle beauty of the herbs, but if you want a stronger lemon touch, add more juice or zest to take the flavour to another level.
2 tablespoons lemon balm
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Mix the lemon balm, lemon peel and thyme in a small bowl. Boil 4 cups of water. For each serving of herbal tea, use 1 teaspoon of the mixture to 1 cup of hot water. Let steep for 5 minutes or more. Just before serving, add 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice to each cup.
*If you want a stronger, more medicinal herbal tea, use 2 teaspoons or up to 1 tablespoon of the mixture per serving.
Makes 2 to 4 cups
