You cannot fail to identify this herb from its aroma. Yes, it is that unique. Lemongrass is widely used in Thai cuisines. If you have been to any Asian spa, you must have already had a sip of lemongrass tea. It is an amazing revitalizing drink. If you haven’t yet tasted it, you can sip it right at your home by preparing it using this simple recipe.
Wash the fresh lemongrass under running water. Clean them and cut into small pieces using a pair of sharp scissors.
Pour water in a saucepan and bring it to boil.
Add the small pieces of lemongrass to it and cover it with a lid.
Let the mixture boil for another 10-15 mins. The time depends on how strong you want your tea to be.
Using a strainer strain the tea in your favorite cup.
Add some sweetener like sugar, honey, or maple syrup, if you wish. You may also add some herbs or spices like lime, anise, ginger, mint, or cinnamon to suit your taste buds. Enjoy it hot!
If you'd like to have a chilled beverage, let the tea cool down and refrigerate it. Garnish it with some lime or lemongrass and serve chilled!
Usually, the lemongrass tea tastes best on its own, but if you like, you may add the sweeteners. We suggest you try it the traditional way first and then adjust the taste as you wish.
