Ziziphora clinopodioides is a scented shrublet of the Middle East mountains. In Mt Hermon it is considered as the best herb for tea. One can add a few of its small leaves and the drink becomes much better. Sometimes we add them to cold tab water and get a better taste. Herre u can see a close up of the flowering head. The shrublet is breeping, probably a great plant for a dry rock garden.
