Oh boy. A nice heartbreaking Formula 1 race is a great way to start the the day. I’ve been drinking a lot of this tea lately. I received it as a Christmas gift. It’s possible that it’s better hot, but I’ve been drinking big pitchers of it cold, and it tastes kind of dirty. Like a more savory herb. Lemon verbena is something that I’ve in general avoided since it sounded like it wouldn’t be too exciting, but I’ll drink this since it’s free. I’ve found that shorter steep times cut down on the dirty taste. And it’s possible that other versions of this tea would taste more pleasant. I just don’t have enough experience to say.
