Lemon Balm Lavender Tisane

[Photographs: Autumn Giles]

Lemon balm is a member of the mint family, but its bright, lemony scent is immediately recognizable and makes a super-refreshing iced tisane. If you're someone who usually recoils from the floral taste of lavender, fear not. This recipe uses fresh lavender leaves, which have a less assertive flavor.
