Lemon Verbena & Dittany of Crete
Aloysia citrodora & Origanum dictamnus
When the “queen” Verbena met the Cretan “love”, Dittany, Queen’s Love was born!
Queen’s Love is a botanical blend of Verbena (Aloysia citrodora) and Dittany (Origanum dictamnus).
The fruity lemon scent of Verbena has been “married” with the strong taste of Dittany, creating a delightful beverage of special taste which combines the beneficial properties of both herbs.
Whole leaves of Verbena, flowers and leaves of Dittany dried in natural conditions, mixed in proportions specified in our secret recipe and carefully placed in a double package of 5gr.
Inside the package, they are placed in a suitable and certified for food bag with a zip, for easy opening and closing but also for preserving its aroma. The outer carton has a small opening for protection against light.
Verbena is originally from South America. It came to Europe in the 17th century from the Spaniards. Today in Crete we consider it “our own” plant, calling it “gorgoyianni”. More info here.
