Coyote mint, Monardella villosa, makes a nice tea. Besides being irresistible to bees, coyote mint is a butterfly magnet. According to Katherine Siva Saubel and Lowell Bean in Temalpakh, Cahuilla people made a tea for the relief of stomachaches. You can purchase coyote mint at Las Pilitas in San Diego County and Tree of Life Native Plant Nursery in Orange County.
I’m growing one plant for tea in my kitchen garden on my deck, and a couple of coyote mints in my garden for the butterflies and bees, along with other native mints, including yerba buena, Satureja douglasii; the rare San Diego willowy mint, Monardella linoides ssp. viminea; and mountain mint, Monardella odoratissma.
