Description

Tea Tree leaves are strongly lemon scented and can be used to brew a strongly aromatic tea, or they can be added as a flavouring to everyday tea.

The Lemon Scented Tea Tree (Leptospermum petersonii) is a vigorous, fast growing, tall shrub with handsome foliage that is intensely aromatic (lemon), growing to a maximum of 5 metres which is cultivated as an ornamental and for essential oils. It naturally occurs near sclerophyll forest or rainforest, on sandy or rocky escarpments, on the east coast of Australia.

Captain Cook and his crew tried to make tea-like infusions from it, believing the citrus aroma would prevent scurvy.
