Commercial Description

Lemon verbena is a very fragrant flowering shrub native to South America, where it's used to make tea. While not as well known as other lemony herbs, it is well worth getting to know as it is one of the most flavorful of this class of herbs.

I like lemon verbena very much, and I find it a pleasant change of pace from other lemon-scented herbal teas. This batch was unusually bold in flavor, but its aroma was similar to other lemon verbena: lemony without being overwhelmingly so.

Aroma suggests lemon, gingerbread, and is also mildly vegetal and herbaceous, slightly suggestive of oregano, thyme, or marjoram. There's a mild resinous quality, but less so than lemon myrtle. Flavor is somewhat bitter and sour, especially if brewed stronger. Relatively low astringency.

I find the leaf goes very far and, while it looks loosely packed and I would normally use a heaping teaspoon for lemon verbena, I recommend using less than a teaspoon, and a brief (under 3 minute) infusion.

I enjoyed this very much, but it pales in comparison to whole-leaf examples of lemon verbena. I liked the bitterness and low astringency, but I thought it was a bit too sour for my tastes. Very good price though, especially given that it's certified organic.

It's very smooth on the tongue and not overwhelmingly lemon flavored. Two thumbs up!
