How to Make Lemon Balm Tea: A Refreshing and Soothing Herbal Brew

Mint herbal tea

Lemon balm is a versatile herb that can be used in a variety of ways to promote health and wellbeing. One of the most popular ways to enjoy its benefits is by brewing a cup of lemon balm tea. This aromatic and refreshing herbal brew is easy to make at home, and can be enjoyed hot or iced. In this article, we'll show you how to make lemon balm tea from scratch and provide some tips for customizing it to your taste.


  • 2 cups of water

  • 4-5 fresh lemon balm leaves or 1-2 teaspoons of dried lemon balm leaves

  • Honey, lemon or mint (optional)

Preparation Time: ~10 to 15 minutes


  1. Start by boiling 2 cups of water in a pot or kettle. If you're using fresh lemon balm leaves, wash them thoroughly and pat them dry. If you're using dried leaves, measure out 1-2 teaspoons and place them in a tea infuser or strainer.

  2. Once the water has boiled, remove it from the heat and add the lemon balm leaves or tea infuser. Allow the leaves to steep for 5-10 minutes, depending on your taste preferences.

  3. After the tea has steeped, remove the leaves or tea infuser and pour the tea into a cup. If desired, you can add honey, lemon or mint to taste. Honey can help to sweeten the tea, while lemon or mint can provide a refreshing twist.

  4. Stir the tea and enjoy! If you're making iced lemon balm tea, let the tea cool to room temperature before pouring it over ice.

Tips for Customizing Your Lemon Balm Tea:

  • For a stronger flavor, use more lemon balm leaves or steep the tea for a longer period of time.

  • If you prefer a sweeter tea, add more honey or a dash of sugar.

  • If you like a citrusy twist, add a slice of lemon or a few drops of lemon juice.

  • For a refreshing twist, add a sprig of fresh mint or a few drops of mint extract.

Lemon balm tea is a simple and delicious way to enjoy the many benefits of this versatile herb. Whether you prefer it hot or iced, this herbal brew can help to soothe and calm the mind, promote relaxation, and support overall health and wellbeing. So why not give it a try and enjoy a refreshing cup of home made lemon balm tea today?
