This aromatic, perennial shrub is native to South America. Despite its distinctly lemony taste and aroma, it is not, in fact, related to the renowned citrus fruit. It can grow to heights of up to three metres. Its leaves, meanwhile, reach lengths of up to 8 centimetres. These leaves, in particular, exude the plant's trademark scent.
Lemon Verbena flourishes in fertile soils with good drainage. It requires warm and humid climates to grow to its full potential. It also prefers sunlit areas with sheltered positioning. Many products contain this alluring plant, including perfumes, potpourris and, of course, Tea. Here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, we prefer the latter.
Hibiscus is a genus of hundreds of flowering plant species belonging to the Mallow family, Malvaceae. We use the Hibiscus sabdariffa variety, in particular, when making Hibiscus Tea blends. It grows in abundance across much of the world, including in Africa, Europe and North America. The flowers produce a flavour similar to that of pomegranates and cranberries.
The history of Hibiscus Tea benefits began in Ancient Egypt. Pharaohs consumed Hibiscus Tea to combat the fierce scorn of the desert heat while cruising along the river Nile. Today, many choose to drink it because, put simply, it tastes great.
Ginger belongs to the Zingiberaceae family. It no longer grows in the wild but is nevertheless widely cultivated owing to its immense popularity. In fact, it is one of the most famous spices in the world. Its outstandingly zingy flavour comes specifically from the rhizome of the ginger plant, better known as a root.
This herb has long had a close association with both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Indian Ayurveda. Today, science likewise recognises its potential for improving everyday life. This is mainly due to its ability to ward off colds and the flu.

Lemon Verbena, Hibiscus and Ginger Tea Benefits
Are you looking to lower your blood pressure? Look no further than Lemon Verbena, Hibiscus and Ginger Tea. The crucial ingredient, hibiscus, has long had a close association with lowering blood pressure. A study conducted by the American Heart Association (AHA) has the answers.
It saw sixty-five people aged between 30 and 70 split into two groups. Both groups had abnormally high blood pressure, but only one received hibiscus.
After six weeks, the results determined that the Hibiscus group "showed an average fall of 7.2 percent in blood pressure, with some recording a 13.2 percent drop. In comparison, the placebo group recorded only a 1.3 percent drop". How did this work? Scientists credit it to the anti-inflammatory properties of this herb. It can improve the elasticity of the body's blood vessels, as well as their ability to dilate.
