Lemon Verbena Tisane = Lemon Verbena Tea

Here's a page from the Gardeners' Community Cookbook, compiled by Victoria Wise. It's a bit elaborate, but describes how to make tisane (which most of us call "tea") with fresh Lemon Verbena leaves. A tisane is an infusion of any herb, fresh or dried, in hot water. 

Personally, I like using dried Lemon Verbena to make tea. Sometimes I mix it with other dried herbs, such as Nettle and Mint, too. But I always cover the container. A cup of boiling water with herbs in it, fresh or dried, cools off a lot in five minutes, so that's why I always cover the mug or use a jar with a lid, because I like it HOT!
