Mystery Asian Herb

gargantua | Mar 3, 2007 11:27 AM

On an impulse I bought a small tray of an herb I had not seen before. It is very fresh and young, the stems are delicate and edible with several clusters of leaves along each stem. The leaves are about an inch long but only1/4 inch wide and bright green, very small serrations. It has a faintly lemony scent and a faintly funky bitter flavor raw. The checkout lady at the Asia Mart said they were lemon leaves but I don't think so. It is not basil (or any kind I have ever seen).

Any thoughts?
