Making Lemon Verbena Tea

Lemon verbena tea is a popular herbal tea made with fresh or dried lemon verbena leaves. It has a mild, lemony flavor and is often drank for its therapeutic properties. Here’s how to make it:


  • 1-2 tablespoons of fresh or dried lemon verbena leaves
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • Optional sweetener


  1. If you’re using fresh leaves, wash them and pat them dry. If you’re using dried leaves, you can go straight to step two.
  2. Put one or two tablespoons of leaves in a teapot or mug, depending on the strength of flavor you want.
  3. Pour in one cup of boiling water.
  4. Let the tea steep for 5-7 minutes.
  5. Strain the tea and add a sweetener of your choice, if desired.
  6. Enjoy!

Lemon verbena tea is best enjoyed hot, but you can also enjoy it cold. Any leftover tea can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy and reap the benefits of this tasty, lemony drink!
