Also known as Lemon Ironwood, it is a tropical rainforest shrub native to Australia that can grow into a full tree. It is a relative of the fragrant Eucalyptus tree. The botanical name of Lemon Myrtle is ‘backhousia citriodora’. Its main flavor constituent is citral, which is responsible for most of the lemon scents and flavors in nature, including that found in lemon fruit, lemon grass, lemon balm, and lemon verbena. Citral has several medicinal uses, it is a potent antiseptic, and may prove useful in treating gastro-intestinal infections. Lemon Myrtle is also known for its relaxing effect on the body. Delicious as an iced tea. Caffeine free.

Herbal teas with light, delicate blossoms or leaves require somewhat shorter steeping times and lower temperatures than other more hearty herbs. We recommend using 1/2 to 1 teaspoons of leaf per 8oz of near boiling water (180 to 200 F) and steeping 3 to 5 minutes. This provides a sweeter, better tasting brew while repeated infusions allow you to extract all the nutritional and medicinal benefits from the herb.
Herbal teas can be brewed in porcelain, ceramic, glass, or stainless steel but never in aluminum or other harmful materials. Be sure to cover the cup or teapot while steeping to prevent the loss of fragrant essential oils and other therapeutic and nutritional elements.
