Lemon Verbena

Lemon Verbena

Lemon Verbena is a South American plant of the utmost value being very popular throughout the Victorian period. Utilised in many ways for its strong lemony smell, Indigo Herbs has acquired a quality source of this plant that we are offering in a pure and unadulterated form as Lemon Verbena Leaf Tea.

Lippia citriodora originates from South America where it was first publicly discovered by a French botanist named Philibert Commerson in 1767. Lemon Verbena was already being exported in large qualities by the Spanish but hadn’t officially been made public by any botanical journals until Commerson. It wasn’t until 1797 that two Spanish professors officially named Lemon Verbena, Aloysia citrodora, Hierba de la Princesa, in honour of Maria Louisa of Parma, wife of Infante Carlos de Borbon. As the plant spread throughout Europe, the Victorians favoured the scent and its revitalising properties. Victorian women would stow a leaf of the plant in their handkerchiefs during the hot summer months to inhale and freshen the senses. In South America the plant has always been used for digestive complaints and calming the nervous system, while in Europe the essential oil became more popular as well as a flavouring to meat and other culinary dishes.   

Aloysia citriodora or Lippia citriodora is a tropical perennial shrub belonging to the family Verbenaceae. The plants natural habitat is Argentina and Chile. Growth can reach more than 3 metres high in sub-tropical climates. Cultivated in a greenhouse as a potted Lemon Verbena can reach a height of about 25.4 cm. The leaves are thin, long and pointed, with green colour that can sometimes pass as yellowish. Flowers are usually white and bloom in spears.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. The botanical ingredients can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy.

Serving:

Use ½-1 teaspoon of dried leaves per person, per cup of boiling water.

1 teaspoon = 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Lemon Verbena Leaf Tea comes from plants that are grown for the specific use as tea. All plants are grown under supervision and soil checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peak maturity the leaves are separated from the root, cleaned and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The leaf cut is then tested again for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.
