Why is Myosotis flower tea also called "forget me not tea"?
Myosotis flower tea is also referred to as “forget me not tea” because of an old legend, which different sources tell in various ways, but all have the same general theme. In the story, a knight and his love were walking along the side of a river. He picked some flowers for her, but his armour was so heavy that when he leaned over he fell into the river. As he was being swept away by the water, he threw the flowers to his loved one and shouted, “Forget me not!” It is because of this quaint story that the myosotis is often referred to as the forget me not plant.
