Known as Luiza in its native Greece and Verveine in France, Lemon Verbena’s name derives from the citrus and lemon fragrance given off by the leaves.
We only organic verbena picked and packaged within the EU. This tea has been hand-picked from the slopes of the West Pindos Mountains in Greece, resulting in an amazing Lemon fragrance.
Verbena was originally grown by the ancient Egyptians, and has long been valued by Mediterranean cultures for its multiple uses as a herbal remedy. In Wales and England, verbena was even believed to be a potent aphrodisiac!
We highly recommend trying Lemon Verbena as a delicious and refreshing iced tea. It’s perfect for a sunny afternoon.
Luiza’s health benefits are caused by the presence of large amounts of Luteolin. Luckily, a cup of Lemon Verbena tastes far better than other Luteolin-rich foods such as celery.
