THE STORY OF RASPBERRY LEMON VERBENA
Looking for love in all the wrong places? We've got your elixir. Raspberry Lemon Verbena combines the juiciness of dried raspberry with the potency of luxury lemon verbena - both noted by spiritualists for their love-inducing properties.
In ancient Rome, Lemon Verbena was said to ignite the flames of passion within lovers. Subsequently it found favor as an ingredient in a popular love potion, used during the ancient rites of Aphrodite. During the Middle Ages, Raspberries, for their part, were said to invoke the energy of the blood, facilitating the flow of love and kindness through the body. Put them together and we can't say where your love will go.
What we can say, is that the bright citrusy burst of Lemon Verbena happens to pair exceedingly well with the tart sweetness of raspberry. Blended here with an additional assortment of herbs, fruit pieces and flower petals, these two powerhouses help produce a naturally caffeine-free cup that brightens the mind, lifts the body and inspires the spirit.
The next time you're feeling like your life could use an infusion of love, this is the tea to reach for. Fragrant, refreshing and packed with antioxidants and vitamins, your body is going to say "I love you" with every sip.
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with water brought to a boil for 3-7 minutes.
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 7 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Drink plain, or consider adding lemon and sweetening to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 7 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Consider adding lemon and sweetening to taste.
NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves. Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion. Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
