Ice Tea

Ice is a cross between lemon balm and mint. It has a potent fresh smell of lemons and great flavour especially in teas. It’s a medicinal and culinary plant, as well as useful to deter insects in the summer. We like to our mints and culinary herbs in pots kept near the kitchen, this way we use them more often. We also plant some in our gardens for a bigger harvest. Mint leaves can harvested fresh for most of year and dried leaves can be kept in a jar for the winter.
