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

Brewing:

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.

Wonderful! I AM ENJOYING A CUP RIGHT NOW. I added some of your honey from Ikaria. It is so soothing as I recover from a cold that my great granddaughter gave me for Christmas

It's a wonderful tea; very calming with a light citrus flavor

It's a wonderful tea; very calming with a light citrus flavor. The flavor is similar to Lemon Balm, but with more earthy notes. You only need a few leaves per cup, so the bag will last a long time.
