A couple of posts ago I mentioned harvesting the lemon verbena. Someone asked what I intended to do with it. Elizabeth from Cornish Cream, formerly French Village Life, mentioned that the scent lasts a long time and she uses it for potpourri.
For me, the scent brings back memories of Ecuador, where lemon verbena, or cedron, as it's known there, is used as a tisana, or herbal tea.
Whatever it's called, I put a few leaves in a tea pot, pour boiling water over, let it steep and pour myself a steaming cup of lemony goodness. Perfect for a foggy morning such as today.
What's your morning beverage of choice?
