Nothing beats the flavour of fresh, in-season Raspberries during the summer months. In our latest creation, the humble Raspberry is given a refreshing, summery twist with the combination of aromatic Lemon Verbena. This creates a fruity, Lemon sherbet-like flavour with a zingy herbal, citrus back note.
Despite its strong Lemon scent, the citrusy herb Lemon Verbena (Aloysia citrodora) has a less intense flavour than similar citrus herbs, such as Lemon Balm and Lemongrass. These help to give the flavour a refreshing, Lemon-like scent at the beginning, that gradually transforms into a sweet, floral, and fruity aroma from the Raspberry.
Citrusy, herbal brightness of the Lemon Verbena happens to pair perfectly well with the sweet, floral notes of the Raspberry.
