This is a simple detox tea. Lemon verbena is delicious! I came across it while I was picking up my summer herb plants last spring. I had never heard of it before but learned it is good for cooking and tea. Little did I know this little herb has some amazing detox and medicinal benefits. I love lemon but hate what the acid does to my teeth. With lemon verbena you get the flavor of lemon without the acid.

Cook's Notes:

I keep the leaves on the stem so that I can quickly pull them out right before enjoying; no straining necessary.

This tea is so good!!! I added some honey to it. I couldn't find fresh Lemon Verbena so I used the dried kind and it worked perfectly well. I doubled the quantities as I made a cuppa for my hubby. I'm sure I'll be making this tea again and again. I think it would make a really good iced tea too. Read More
