Do you know what three herbs are always found in authentic absinthe? This is basic absinthe knowledge that we want every Lucid fan to have.
Here’s a tough question for you. Do you know what non-essential herbs can be found in absinthe? That means herbs that aren’t required but that add flavor.
The three herbs that are always found in authentic absinthe are: artemisia absinthium, green anise, and sweet fennel.
As for non-essential herbs, two of them are hyssop and lemon balm. They can be found in absinthe but are not required for the absinthe to be authentic. The herbs that are lighter in flavor and aroma are not put in the distillation; they are added after the distillation. That is where absinthe gets additional layers of flavor.
