Anyone recognize this, I started a bunch of seeds, thought this one was oregano. Obviously not. Smells good when I crush a leaf up.
Any ideas?

Could also be lemon beebalm if it smells lemony when you crush it...

Monarda citriodora, Lemon beebalm  http://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=MOCI

I think all the Beebalms can be used to make tea.
