Lemon Verbena Tea

Lemon Verbena Tea by MexFoodJournal

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
4 cups


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.

16 minutes
