Its citrusy scent precedes it. Native to the Andes and grown for its fragrant leaves from Ecuador to Argentina via the Peruvian coast and Chile, verbena is a woody plant of the Verbenaceae family. It is widely used in cooking and infusions. The leaves are highly fragrant, with green notes of fresh grass and a citrusy smell and taste.
Its citrusy freshness accompanies us all year round. Naturally, verbena is used in cooking, infusions and liqueurs; its digestive and soothing properties have been known for centuries.
