Greek Lemon Verbena Tea (known in Greece as Luiza, pronounced loo-WEE-za) is made from lemon verbena leaves. Deliciously fragrant, it gets its name from the lemony fragrance of the leaves when they are crushed. Greeks drink Luiza Tea for not only its aromatic, citrusy taste, but for its health benefits. Louiza or lemon verbena is believed to aid in digestion. It is used to relieve agitation, for joint pain, insomnia, asthma, colds, fever and more. Lemon verbena has been shown to prevent muscle damage and boost the immune system. Klio Organic Luiza has an ORAC 5.0 antioxidant value of 4,920 and 59mg of polyphenols per serving. It also contains high amounts of the phytonutrient Luteolin (5.8mg per serving); twice the amount found in a serving of artichokes and three times the amount found in a serving of celery, both considered to be among the best natural 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. Klio Organic Luiza is hand picked and sourced from Karditsa in the West Pindos Mountains. Be sure to also try it as an iced tea! Delicious and refreshing!
