Have you ever used it for making tea? I have not, just wondering.

I'll have to make a point to give it a try also. Think I'll go cut off a stem and hang it in the garage for drying...

The only mint I have is Cat-mint Rolling on the floor laughing which I do drink to help me relax at night...but it's hard to drink with 7 cats wanting their share Rolling on the floor laughing

The hardest part of picking it was deciding which pieces to pick *Blush*

Lee Anne did you ever try your Bee Balm tea? I used my Keurig coffee maker today with Bee Balm and it worked real good (I have an insert with a filter for my Keurig).
