Lemongrass is a herb grass with a strong citrus flavour and aroma that grows in many sub-tropical regions of the world, including Southeast Asia through India, Africa, Australia, and parts of South America.
Lemongrass became a popular addition to herb tea blends in the 1970s and was quickly accepted in Europe. Try adding a teabag of Lemongrass to your favourite black, green, or herb tea. Lemongrass is also excellent by itself, for a thirst-quenching lemony treat. It's great hot or cold.
- Good water is an essential part of brewing a great cup of tea. We recommend using spring or filtered water.
- Be sure to relax! Some of the most enjoyable aspects of tea are the calmness and ritual that surround it.
- This is a delicate herb and is more potent when exposed to high temperatures for a short period of time. So that your tea has its maximum medicinal properties and flavour, be sure that your water is at a rolling boil when you pour it over your teabags.
- If you desire a medicinal tea, be sure to use one tea bag per cup of boiling water, cover and steep for 7-12 minutes. This is known as the infusion method.
- If you desire a pleasure tea or quick brew, use one tea bag per cup of hot water. Pour water over tea bags, cover, and let steep 3 to 5 minutes to taste.
