Tasters Review:

If you are looking for a nice soothing herbal tea that has lemon notes without the pucker try French Verveine from The Tao of Tea.

This is a very lovely herbally-lemon…a very smooth and gentle lemon. Everything is mellow about this tisane…but isn’t that the point!?

I know this is redundant but…it’s very nice and very relaxing!

I think this would be interesting to cook with too!  Perhaps with rice!  YUM!  I just might have to try that!
