Smile Re: Making Tea From Plants ???

When I dry my lemon balm properly, it has a distinct purple color to back of the leaves.

I think chocolate mint will dry with a chololate color on the back of the leaves that will get more pronounced as it dries. Here's a shoot I snipped off to dry for tea, so I could see what it's like. You can already see the chocolate hue to the back of the leaves...

Looking so forward to trying some chocolate mint tea...
