Lemon is one of natures most versatile fruits. Because of its High vitamin C content, antibacterial, and astringent properties, lemon is the de facto garnish in herbal teas. Lemon is used in herbal medicine to help build immunity against colds, influenza, and other viral infections.
Lemon adds a zesty, mild citrus flavor to herbal tea blends and can be enjoyed as a single tea. It is not nearly as mouth-puckering astringent as fresh lemon.
