This tisane can be made in less than 5 minutes and it’s such a refreshing beverage! Three leaves of fresh shiso, lemon verbena, and fresh basil is all you need. Oh, and water.
SHISO, LEMON VERBENA, BASIL HERBAL TEA
Makes 1 serving
1 cup water
3 fresh shiso leaves (From a Japanese market.)
3 lemon verbena leaves (I used Harney & Sons Verveine (c/o).)
3 fresh basil leaves
1. Bring water to a boil and turn off heat.
2. Steep shiso, lemon verbena, and basil leaves in hot water for 3-5 minutes.
3. Filter leaves. Enjoy!
So easy. (I will say it’s a bit of an acquired taste if you’re not familiar with shiso.)
