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.
