Our whole-leaf Verbena has a vibrant green color and a full-bodied citrusy flavor. We source our selection from a lovely herb farm in Crete, where all plants are dried naturally and destemmed by hand at the beginning of summer when Verbena is at its peak. From planting to packing, everything is done with great care. It is hard not to notice the qualitative superiority of these incredibly fragrant leaves!

Although Verbena arrived in Europe only in the 17th century, it quickly established itself and found a second home throughout the Eastern Aegean islands and Crete. The region’s climate beautifully suited the plant, and it became a garden staple. 

Lemon verbena is perfect for making tea or making herb-infused water. Naturally uplifting the mind and body, but also acts as a calming and soothing solution for the digestive system.


How to use

The most popular use of Lemon Verbena is for the preparation of herbal infusions. You’ll need 1 tsp (approximately 0.3 g) for every 250 ml cup. Brew for 4-5 minutes at 95°C, covered. Strain and serve.

Lemon Verbena is excellent for making herb-infused water. Just follow the steps above for brewing an herbal infusion, then strain and let it come to room temperature. On those hot summer days, Lemon Verbena iced tea can be a delightfully refreshing thirst quencher.

For optimal quality, place in an airtight container in a drawer or cupboard. Properly storing your herbs is very important as it expands their life span. Avoid direct sunlight and humidity.
