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.
It’s All great
Fabulous tea….great flavor
A Family Favorite
We've been drinking this regularly for the past couple of years, both hot and iced, unsweetened or with honey. Delicious!
As always, this is one of our favorites (and a wonderful addition to a ginger tea we make regularly)
