Verbena tea is a diamond super food for Explorers so I've been looking for some. All I can find is Lemon Verbena. Is it what the book is talking about or close enough?

Sorry, canít help you either.  We drink lots of tea in our house, but never had that.  I guess I should look for it.  Lemon is a super food, so if you have a combination of both lemon & verbena it sounds like a winner to me.

I looked for this in the Ask Dr. D'Adamo section, because I was curious too, and neither Verbena or Lemon Verbena came up in a search.

I am wondering if he really means Vervain (Verbena officinalis-European) or Blue Vervain (Verbena hastata-American) which are both medicinals.

"Vervain, which has tonic and restorative properties, is sometimes used as a domestic herbal remedy. It is useful when taken internally in the treatment of headaches, fevers, nervous exhaustion, depression, gall bladder problems, insufficient lactation etc. It should not be given to pregnant women, though it can be used to assist contractions during labour. Externally, it is used to treat minor injuries, eczema, sores, neuralgia and gum disease. The leaves and flowering stems are analgesic, antibacterial, anticoagulant, antispasmodic, astringent, depurative, diaphoretic, mildly diuretic, emmenagogue, galactogogue, stimulant, tonic and vulnerary." Plants for a Future Data Base

I've seen other references as well for its use as a nervine, Vervain was a prized Druid herb, and has a long history of use in Europe.

The French drink Vervaine which is verbena and has sometimes a slightly lemon taste. It is aslo sometimes mixed with lemon grass. They say it is good for digestion and with the lemon grass it helps with circulation. I bring it back from Europe when I go there, but sometimes you can also find it in the Hispanic/Mexican sections of food stores right next to the camiomille/manzinilla.

I'm finding most ordinary green teas pretty boring, and am delighted to have located a "Tea Shop" in town. I'll be fronting up there with my Beverage list, and getting some of the recommended teas for Warrior.But coffee is still da bomb for me.
