Response to Sheeba, Moroccan tea - Wormwood ?

 

I'm so glad this discussion occurred. I have been trying to find the ingredients for Moroccan Berber tea. It was very difficult to locate, and to know what to do with the names Louiza, Sheeba, & Selma!
Ingredients for Berber Tea discussed in this thread:
- Louiza -- Lemon Verbena
- Sheeba (or cheeba) -- Artemesia arborescens (In California, we have Artemesia californica, so I'll use that)
- Mint
- Selma --? What is this?

I have also heard of Habeeqah being used in Moroccan Berber Tea, which might be Melissa officinalis (lemon balm). Do Moroccans use lemon balm in tea, because I saw this for sale in the market, too. This conjecture that haqeebah is lemon balm is based on my sparse notes.
