WILD BERGAMOT, BEE BALM
Monarda fistulosa a/k/a wild bergamot. However, it can be grown quite nicely in a garden and one does not have to tramp into the wilds for this plant. This bergamot has pink or lilac colored flowers, whereas the Didyma species has flaming red flowers.
Wild bergamot closely resembles its near relative Oswego tea (Mdidyma). Both are aromatic mints of approximately the same size and general appearance
Use wild bergamot as a tea served for a nerve or stomach tonic. Also for colds and flu; to treat mouth and throat infections; and, as a general stimulant.
Several bee balm species, including M. fistulosa and M. didyma, have a long history of use as medicinal plants by Native Americans including the Blackfoot, Menominee, Ojibwa and Winnebago.
Wild Bergamot tastes like a mix of spearmint and peppermint with oregano. This is NOT same as LEMON BALM.
For those who appreciate natural grown herbs backed by expertise and high standards. This is grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, etc
This is a bulky unprocessed, herb with flowers and leaves, so, one ounce is a sandwich bag size
Come and visit my store for good old fashion, high quality, fresh teas, bath herbs,and just herbs!
For the most part unless mentioned otherwise, each tea bag will make 2 to 3 cups of tea; If loose herb tea, two ounces will make about 23 cups of tea . One ounce of just an herb is about a sandwich bag, and sometimes a little more. If it is a root herb such as burdock root it is heavier, thus an ounce would be about a quarter of a sandwich bag. Comfrey, plantain and nettle leaves would be in a quart size bag.
