Our Luiza (Lemon Verbena) also contains high amounts of the phytonutrient Luteolin (5.8mg per serving); twice the amount found in a serving of artichokes which is considered to be among the best sources of Luteolin. Luteolin belongs to a special class of phytonutrients called flavanones, it is considered a super nutrient and is the subject of significant research
Tasting notes: A mild earthiness with hints of lemon
Place a small handful (1.4g) in a pot with about 10 oz of freshly boiled water. Cover and steep for about 5-7 minutes. Strain, and enjoy. Crushing the leaves in your hand before steeping helps to release the essential oils and enhances the flavor.
You can also use a large format infuser that provides adequate contact between the leaves and water.
Delicious and soothing served hot but also makes a very refreshing iced tea.
My mother is from Greece and Lemon Verbena has always been one of her favorite plant allies. She grew up where it grows abundantly, and I grew up trying to find it to make her smile. I have bought her rare essential oils, and natural soaps with lemon verbena. I even would pick it for her when I moved away and lived in Santa Cruz where it also grows fairly abundantly. One of my favorite spots to find it there also had fig trees and jasmine--basically an angel's paradise. This one has a divine, authentic aroma that make me think of my mom. I'm planning to give her some again soon.
