Quick guide to making a cup of Verbena Lemon Tea
- Bring Water to the boil
- In a teapot, place either 2 teasoons of dried lemon verbena leaves or 1/4 cup of fresh leaves (5 or 6 leaves) per cup of water your teapot holds. Chopping up the leaves will allow for a better release of aromas, flavours and medicinal compounds into the hot water
- Pour boiling water over the verbena and let it steep for 5 to 10 minutes. The longer the tea steeps, the stronger the infusion will be. If the tea gets a grassy taste you may want to reduce steeping time
- Strain the tea into a tea cup to stop the infusion. It should be a pleasant zingy, citrus taste. If you need to, add a little honey to sweeten the drink and enjoy whilst hot
- To help improve digestion, drink a cup of the tea after the two main meals of the day
