photo2 (1)

A fragrant blend of dried Lemon Verbena, also known as Verveine, grown on small farms averaging 2 acres in size in north and central France.  Flavie Lenne in Corrèze and Isabelle Chaillou and Loïc Le Pollès in Brittany both grow their verbena without the use of artificial fertilisers and pesticides and pick and process all their tisanes manually. Their yearly production combined is just 15-20kg.

Sweet and aromatic with a strong, pure flavour reminiscent of lemon without the acidity, this is ideal drunk in the evening or cold brewed in the fridge on a hot day. Best brewed with boiling water using a small leaf/water ratio and infused for 4-5 minutes.
