The well-known fragrant, sweet-scented or lemon verbena (lippia citriodora) is regarded among the Spanish people as a fine stomachic and cordial. It is either nsed in the form of a cold decoction, sweetened, or five or sip leaves are put into a teacup, and hot tea poured upon them. The author of a recent w r ork, “Among the Spanish People,” says that the flavor of the tea thus prepared “is simply delicious, and no one who has drunk his Pekoe with it will ever again drink it without a sprig of lemon verbena.” And he further makes a statement, more important than all the rest, if true, that if this decoction be used one need “never suffer from flatulence, never be made nervous or old maidish, never have cholera, diarrhoea, oip loss of appetite. ”
