Lemon balm may belong to the mint family, but as its name suggests, this European herb is famous for its lemony scent and flavor. In ancient Greece, the plant was known as Melissa, the Greek word for honeybee, since bees are very attracted to its small, fragrant flowers. Humans have cultivated lemon balm for over two millennia. It is often used in cooking for its lemony flavor, serving as an herbal stand-in for nearly any recipe requiring lemon. Lemon balm tea has also been served almost since its cultivation began. As an herbal tea, lemon balm is both flavorful and aromatic, and is pleasant in both regards. The taste offers overtones of lemon and mint, and has an appealing herbal quality that is stimulating in its own right, but which can also be enhanced with a touch of sugar or honey as desired.
