Lemon verbena in green tea

One Mellow Monk fan tells us she likes putting leaves from her lemon verbena bush into her green tea. A picture of the leaves is shown below.

We decided to try it ourselves. We got a few verbena leaves from an acquaintance who also had a verbena bush, gave the leaves a quick rinse under the faucet and plopped them into a pot of Mellow Monk tea. We liked it! It gives the tea a very subtle hint of lemon, but isn't too lemony at all. Of course, Mellow Monk tea has a full-bodied flavor that can stand on its own, but every once in a while, a change of pace is nice. Variety is the spice of life, after all.

If you have any suggestions about nice things to add to green tea, please drop us a line and let us know.
