How to Make Lemon Balm Tea

Lemon balm is a fragrant herb with a lemon-mint flavor that can be used to make a soothing cup of tea. Drinking tea made from this herb has been proven to help reduce stress and reduce anxiety. Here’s how to easily make lemon balm tea in the comfort of your own home:

What You’ll Need

  • Fresh or dried lemon balm leaves – These can be found at most health food stores or purchased online.
  • Teapot or French Press– You will need a vessel to steep the lemon balm leaves
  • Water– Boiled and cooled to the desired temperature.
  • Honey or sugar (optional)– If you’d like to sweeten your tea.
  • Tea filter or strainer– To contain the lemon balm.


  1. Place 1–2 teaspoons of the fresh or dried lemon balm leaves in the teapot or French press.
  2. Fill the teapot with the boiled and cooled water. Make sure the water is not too hot, this can reduce the lemony flavor of the tea.
  3. Allow the tea to steep for 5 – 10 minutes.
  4. Strain the tea through the filter or strainer into your cup.
  5. Add honey or sugar if desired.
  6. Enjoy your delicious lemon balm tea!

You can also add other herbs or spices to your tea, such as chamomile or ginger, to create a unique flavor. Lemon balm tea is a healthy, refreshing way to reduce stress and improve your mood. So grab some fresh lemon balm leaves, brew up a cup of tea, and relax!
