- Lemon Balm
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is used as a flavouring in ice cream and herbal teas, both hot and iced, often in combination with other herbs such as spearmint. It is a common addition to peppermint tea, mostly because of its complementing flavour. Lemon balm is also paired with fruit dishes or candies. Additionally, it can be used in fish dishes and is the main ingredient in lemon balm pesto. It is the basis of the cordial eau des Carmes and is used in various liqueurs.
