With hints of fennel and also a spicy note, like cinnamon, shiso adds complexity to the classic, cooling mint tea.
Lemon balm is a member of the mint family, but its bright, lemony scent is immediately recognizable and makes a super-refreshing iced tisane.
When steeped in hot water, nettles make a super-savory infusion that is a great pairing for the slightly spicy rosemary.
