Lemon Verbena Herbal Tea


Whole-leaf Verbena has a vibrant green color and a full-bodied citrusy flavor. Sourced from a lovely herb farm in Crete, where all plants are dried naturally and destemmed by hand at the beginning of summer when Verbena is at its peak. From planting to packing, everything is done with great care. It is hard not to notice the qualitative superiority of these incredibly fragrant leaves!

Lemon Verbena is excellent for making herb-infused water. Just follow the steps explained in the 'Ritual' tab for brewing an herbal infusion, then strain and let it come to room temperature. On those hot summer days, Lemon Verbena iced tea can be a delightfully refreshing thirst quencher. 

Verbena is also well suited for experiments due to its combinable, citrusy flavor. Crush a few leaves and use them in sponge cakes or homemade pasta. It makes a unique substitute for lemon or mint in stuffing recipes.


The most popular use of Lemon Verbena is for the preparation of herbal infusions. You’ll need 1 tsp (approximately 0.3 g) for every 250 ml cup. Brew for 4-5 minutes at 95°C, covered. Strain and serve. 

For optimal quality, place in an airtight container in a drawer or cupboard. Properly storing your herbs is very important as it expands their life span. Avoid direct sunlight and humidity.
