Very refreshing, very lemony, with none of the over-sweetness you get from commercial bagged lemon teas. Tastes quite similar to, and is every bit as good as, fresh lemon balm tea.
Aloysia triphylla or lemon verbena is a leafy herb with a wonderful lemon flavour.
The whole leaves have been cut to help them infuse.
Put a good pinch in the pot and leave to stand for 3-5 minutes.
It is believed to help aid digestion and to alleviate stress.
It’s quite delicious.
