Can you name this herb? Can you name it quick? I could win a free bottle of kombucha, guys. Important.

So many guesses and it's driving me nuts that no one has guessed it yet! I can't identify it!

I feel like I saw it at the farmers market and didn't know what it was. Something Latin American or Mexican.

Nope, that was someone else's guess and they said no!

They said "think permaculture and the mint family".

I was looking at mint and didn't see any.

Yeah, it's so weird. The red stem and the white underside (as seen in some of the leaves still in the colander) is weird. I'm stumped. But a FREE bottle of kombucha.

Nope! That's been guessed too. Trevor is also on the case, googling leaves.

Someone just guessed Meadowsweet, and that looks pretty right to me. I've been bested!

That does look like a match. I've never heard of meadowsweet.

So much for my google powers!

Me neither! And Trevor is a googlewizard and he couldn't find it either! Drat.

It looks like meadowsweet to me. It has the red stem and fuzzy white underside.

I think this is wrong?

Meadowsweet is in the rosaceae family (hence the similarity to blackberry or raspberry leaves), mint is in the lamiaceae family (also home to nettles, thyme, sage and many more culinary herbs).

(I'm not really a botanics expert but I'm an interested amateur. Unfortunately I saw this thread too late.)

I'm also wondering about the permaculture reference. Are people planting it and making DIY artisanal aspirin? It grows wild all over the the UK...where there's wet ground, there's meadowsweet.

I just looked at the Instagram linked above and someone guessed meadwort, which is another name for it, and two comments below it said that no one had guessed correctly yet. Oops.

Unless it actually is something different. Then I take it all back.

My guess is citron melise, but what do I know about herbs? (Practically nothing, that's what.)

Meadowsweet was the winner!

I still feel badly for the person who guessed meadwort and lost. The injustice! An entire bottle of kombucha going to the usurper!
