Herbal Lemon Verbena Tea

I was sitting in my garden the other night and there was this lovely smell coming from my lemon verbena bush so I decided to make herbal tea.
To make the tea you will need a bag of organic white tea or any other non flavoured tea and a branch of lemon verbena.
Rinse the branch to get any dirt off of the leaves.
Set the kettle to boil while you pick the leaves off the branch. I used about a cupful of leaves.
Stuff the leaves and teabag into a teapot and allow to steep for 5 mins.
I left the leftovers to cool and took it to work the next morning as iced tea. You could probably add sugar but I don't like sweetened tea.
