Dried Whole-leaf Lemon Verbena Leaves for Herbal Tea

This photo shows whole-leaf dried lemon verbena which I bought from the ANC Educational Farm at the Bryn Athyn Thrift Shop in Bryn Athyn, PA.

Normally, when I've bought lemon verbena or seen it for sale at tea, herb, or spice companies, the leaf is heavily broken, typically "cut and sift" grade. This was an artisanal example of this herb; it had been dried with whole leaves and packaged in such a way to ensure that the leaf did not break much...and the extra care was worth it, it produced one of the most complex and pleasing herbal infusions I've ever tried; I gave it a perfect rating, and I highly recommend reading my review.
