Verbena leaves have an intense fragrance reminiscent of very fresh lemongrass. It is often drunk as a herbal tea, but can also be used to enhance berry-based desserts, poultry dishes or even fish.
Verbena is native to South America, and benefits from the relatively mild climate and fertile terroir of the Aegean Islands. This product is native to the Greek island of Samos.
We couldn’t help but to fall under the spell and captivating charm of Daphnis and Chloe’s products! A few year ago, the company’s founder, Evangelia Koutsovoulou, devoted herself to discovering the best spices, herbs and herbal teas that her native Greece has to offer. Her research lead to the unearthing of a variety of unique products, some of the best that the Mediterranean has to offer, and which grow in distinct terroirs on smaller islands, as well as in farming areas in Northern Greece. All Daphnis and Chloe products are harvested on small, artisanal farms or gathered on mountain sides where they grow wild.
