GREK

Premium Organic Lemon Verbena in Biodegradable Tea Bags

$23.95

Whilst the lemon verbena plant is, in fact, indigenous to South America, it has quickly made Greece its second home, since it is ideally suited to the climate. The essential oils produced by the plant to counter the summer heat are key to its intense flavour. Fresh, unique and modern, the infusion is becoming increasingly popular amongst the younger generation in Greece and worldwide.

Grek lemon verbena teas have been produced ethically and sustainably in mountainous Epirus and Peloponnese without the use of chemicals or pesticides, hand-picked to arrive in pristine condition, and dried using traditional methods. Extraordinary harmony through a careful balance of varieties from across Greece.

Lemon verbena tea health benefits
A 2011 study showed that lemon verbena reduced muscle damage following exercise, and a separate study in the same year suggested a positive impact on joint function. A Scandinavian study in 2012 indicated anti-oxidative and immune benefits. Lemon verbena has been used to treat various digestive disorders, fever, and to aid sleep. Drinking lemon verbena daily may also aid with weight loss as an appetite suppressant.

We love drinking it mixed with some rare cotton honey with royal jelly because it simply tastes DIVINE!

Flavour profile

Soft, mild lemon with a gentle edge and the faintest hint of violet evokes late summer evenings. Citric, but smooth, calm and gentle. Naturally caffeine free. It is the result of a delicate blend of varieties of lemon verbena from around the country to achieve a balance between clean lemon, a soothing feel, a lack of bitterness and a mysterious presence beneath all this, best described as ‘poignant’. Specialised drying techniques in ovens designed specifically for the task help preserve the intensity of the flavours.
