Linden tea, often called Tilleul (a word of French origin but now used in numerous languages), is an herbal tea made out of the blossoms of linden trees (tilia sp.). The most widely used species is Tilia cordata, or the Little-leaf linden, native to Europe and also widely planted in the U.S. as a street tree. Tilia americana, or American Basswood, native to North America, is also used for this purpose.

Linden blossoms have a strong and distinctive fragrance, which easily recognizable when walking under a linden tree in bloom, in mid summer.

Linden is sometimes used alone, or mixed with other herbs. Less commonly, the leaves of linden trees are used in herbal teas. Usually these are labelled "linden leaf tea", and when the plant part is not specified, "linden tea" refers to the flowers.
