Lemon Tea




I found myself with an abundance of lemon verbena and lemon balm growing in my garden and an offer to borrow my brother's food dehydrator. I read in one of my herb books that those herbs are great in potpourri so I decided to dry them. Somewhere along the way I thought that mixing these two herbs might make a nice tea and then decided to make it really lemony I would dry some organic lemons to add to it. It has turned out to be delicious, expecially with a nice dab of honey. I am thinking that if any colds come along this winter this will be my go-to tea. It also would be nice with a slice of fresh ginger.

I used to have a food dehydrater I think one of my children thought it was theirs. I've put some extra leaves in little freezer bags. They don't look particularly pretty when I defrost them but they seem to still work fine. Nice reminder for the end of the season.
Also, I'm catching up on being behind on my blog reading. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend.
It hard to accept when they leave us. :)Bea

I love lemon verbena and all the lemony herbs. I used to grow them all at my other home. I need to get them started here so I can join you for some good lemony herbal tea. :)
