I have purple Bee Balm that I have grown for years. It makes me think of Earl Grey Tea but that is a Bergamont Orange, Citrus bergamia. Bee Balm is Monarda Didyma in the mint family Lamiaceae. The tea made from it is Oswego Tea. But it smells like Earl Grey to me.

Thank You, beyondwords and AMomentInTime. I am having fun just looking around for interesting things mostly in our yard.

Now THAT's a closeup!

I grow several kinds of bee balm, and bees love it. I'm not surprised to learn it's in the Lamiaceae family, along with several other family members that I grow, but I hadn't known that. I like the smell when I brush against the leaves or handle the plant.

Now I grow just bee balm hybrids that are resistant to powdery mildew. The native bee balm thrives here, but it's very prone to powdery mildew, which I find very unpleasant.

I used to make my own tea/infusion with bee balm but didn't particularly enjoy it. I've never heard of Oswego tea. I don't enjoy Earl Grey but learned to drink it in some social situations if there was no alternative.
