    This is an immature bloom of Oswego Tea, also known as Bee Balm. I mentioned using it with Chickory in a previous post, but it can also be ued by itself to make a great Sun Tea. To do this the leaves must be dried completely. Use 12 tsp of dried leaves for 64 ounces of spring water. Cover and place in direct sun until your drinking strength is achieved. About 4 hours for my taste. It will look very pale - that is good - compared to other Sun Tea brews. With a bit of honey, it will really calm your nerves.
