Verbena

Have you ever enjoyed fresh lemon verbena tea?  We think there’s no more refreshing drink on the planet.  The leaves of this flowering plant – which can grow to two or three metres – are deliciously lemony and fresh when rubbed, and give a cleanness and ‘uplifting’ freshness to scents.  It’s the long leaves which are prized, rather than the tiny (and fleeting) white flowers.  (Not to be confused, incidentally, with the type of verbena grown in Britain, which has no value in perfumery.)
