How to Make Bee Balm Tea from fresh or dried bee balm ~ this easy infusion is not only pretty and delicious, it's been used for hundreds of years to aid digestion, calm nerves, and treat colds and flu.
Servings: 4cups tea
8-10 fresh picked clean bee balm flowers
Put the water into a large glass jar or pitcher. Remove the flower petals from the bee balm stems.
Add the bee balm to the water, giving it a good stir. You can also add leaves if you like.
Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. I give the jar a shake every now and again to help the infusion along.
Strain the tea through cheesecloth or a coffee filter and then keep chilled until ready to use.
