Servings: 4 cups
- 3 lemon verbena leaves
- 4 cups water
- 4 tsp. honey or sweetener of choice optional
Adjusting the Flavor
Our recipe makes a very delicately flavored tea. Chopping the leaves before boiling releases more flavor if you prefer a stronger tea.
Preparing Iced Tea
Double or triple the quantity of leaves if you are preparing iced lemon verbena tea.
You can use agave nectar, stevia or sugar to sweeten your tea instead of honey. It is also delicious unsweetened.
Lemon verbena is also known as lemon beebush. In Mexico, it is called cedrón.
