Lemon Verbena is a herb with a subtle lemony aroma. When brewed it yields a light straw coloured liquor and a refreshing light clean taste.
Taken hot, the soothing notes of lemon are very relaxing and rejuvenating and the tea has a sweetish taste. It tastes wonderful when it is cooled down as well and leaves a very smooth aftertaste.
It is traditionally used to treat colds, fever, anxiety, indigestion and insomnia.
You can also blend it with other ingredients like Ginger to create your very own Lemon and Ginger tea.
