The lemon verbena, or “vervain”, plant is native to South America but is also grown throughout the Mediterranean. Here in the United Kingdom, it’s relatively unknown, but in Southern Europe and South America, it is used to flavour foods and beverages and to make tea.

Lemon verbena is a medicinal herb said to provide an array of health benefits, and its mild, citrusy flavour means it also works great when added to other herbs and plants. We added it to the Shelgo Tea Catnap blend because it imparts a fresh, lemony taste, not unlike the taste you would get from adding a wedge of fresh lemon, and it also works in perfect synergy with the other herbs in that blend.
