The lemon balm tree (Melissa officinalis) belongs to the mint family and is a short-lived perennial herb growing up to twelve feet tall. It normally grows as a fast-growing, bushy, climbing perennial with long green leaves and a mild lemon scent.

Lemon balm is an excellent herbal tea that can be brewed in a cup and made into a refreshing tea or even mixed with other herbs. It is also a delicious herbal drink for tea, especially with cream. It can be used in cooking and is good in salad dressings. It is used as an additive in food preparations to add pungent flavor and some vitamin C.
