It's a dilemma I always have moushie; Once flowering, they are constantly being attended by bees.
As it's the leaves you need for the 'tea', you can strip those and leave the stems and flowers for a while.
Probably the best bet though is to cut half of it down completely and leave the rest for a while. Then cut the other half down when the new growth has got going which will be in flower before you know it.
I harvest mine several times a year.
