How to Make Lemon Verbena Tea


  • 2 to 3 teaspoons of dried lemon verbena
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • Optional: Sugar or honey for sweetening
  • Optional: Lemon for a more tart flavor


  1. Pour boiling water into a teacup. Make sure the cup is heat-proof. Use the full cup of water for a stronger tea or slightly less to make a milder drink.
  2. Add dried lemon verbena leaves. Standard measurements suggest 1-2 teaspoons of the dried herb. Start with just one to ensure that the tea is not too strong for your preference.
  3. Let the tea steep for 10-15 minutes. This will develop its flavor and the beneficial properties of the lemon verbena.
  4. Strain the tea into a cup and remove the herb. Test the tea and add sweeteners such as sugar or honey, or lemon juice if desired.
  5. Enjoy! Enjoy the wonderful, lemony scent and taste of the aromatic lemon verbena.
