There is nothing better than the smell of a fresh picked lemon verbena leaf or chamomile flower. This morning while walking up to the ridge I plucked a verbena leaf from the garden and rubbed it between my fingers. As the bright lemon aroma filled the air I thought how incredible it would be to offer a living tea service at Sierra Mar, where guests could pick their own fresh herbs and experience them at their peak aroma.
Here is a rough draft of the idea…. Now we just have to make it a reality.
