Lemon Verbena

Fragrant, Light, Soothing Mancotta Garden, Assam, India
Composed of the highest quality whole leaf, slowly dried for a fresh and vivid infusion, which is equally evocative and complex, with mint-like brightness, lemon zest pungency and meadow sweetness.

Lemon Verbena

Native to South America, the Lemon Verbena plant was brought to Europe in the 17th century. Initially cultivated for their highly aromatic essential oils, the leaves began to be used as an enjoyable, caffeine-free drink. To ensure a fragrant infusion bursting with character, we select the highest quality whole leaves, which are dried slowly to retain their vivid flavours and elegant freshness.
