Calming Catmint & Lemon Balm Tea

Catmint is rich in vitamin C. Tea made with fresh or dried catmint leaves can soothe the symptoms of a cold, calm restlessness and help sleep to come more easily. 

Combining catmint with the calming properties of lemon balm this tea is both soothing and pleasantly refreshing.

Calming Catmint and Lemon Balm Tea

To make this you will need:
  • 2 teaspoons dried catmint
  • 2 teaspoons dried lemon balm
  • honey or lemon (optional)
  • boiling water

Place the dried herbs directly into a tea pot or infuser. Pour over 1 cup of boiling water and leave to steep for 5-6 minutes. Strain then add a teaspoon of honey to sweeten or a dash of lemon juice.
