drank Lemon balm by Earth
500 tasting notes

I’m adding this to my cupboard even though I actually only have it in alive form in the garden. I go out and pluck leaves for tea every now and then. It’s the first thing that comes out of the ground in the spring (that and the chives) and it’s the last thing to die or go dormant in the fall (plus the chives again). I’ve taken to pouring boiling water over a good handful of fresh leaves and then chilling for iced tea. Delicious and refreshing. :) I love having this herb. I still remember the day I bought the little sprout at the Farmers’ Market. :)

I also have lemon balm in my herb garden, among other things, lol. As of this spring, it also is growing clear across my yard in one of the beds. Surprise!

Terri, that happens to me every year. It will pop up somewhere unexpected. Mine seems to be behaving this year though. :)

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
