If you enjoy herbal teas, you will really enjoy this fragrant lemon verbena tea – té de cedrón – which can be enjoyed hot or over ice. In Mexico, people drink it as a sleep aid and to help reduce indigestion but we drink it because it has a bright delicious lemony flavor.
- 3 lemon verbena leaves
- 4 cups water
- 4 tsp. honey or sweetener of choice optional
Place the 3 lemon verbena leaves in the 4 cups of water.
Boil for 15 minutes.
Serve hot or iced with a teaspoon of honey in each glass for sweetness.
