WHB#269: Homemade Lemongrass Tea

Janet from Taste Space is hosting this edition of Weekend Herb Blogging .

And this week we are bringing together a crowd favourite... Lemongrass Tea! Clement has added a twist to it by adding real tea which really escentuates the lemony flavours of the lemongrass and a very refreshing, delightful drink on a hot, sunny day.

Lemongrass is belived to have antiseptic effects, especially good for a sore throat.

You will need:

10 stalks lemongrass
English breakfast tea (10 teabags)
rock honey, 500grams (as seen in picture)
Water (5litres)


- Bruise lemongrass by hitting it with a blunt object. Cut sections of about 1/3 of total length. (ie. one stalk will yield 3 sections.

- Put 5 litres of water to boil in a large pot with the sections of lemongrasss and teabags, at high heat for an hour.

-Add rock honey, stir to dissolve and take pot off heat.

- Leave to cool and infuse for at least 3 hours. Best left in the fridge overnight.

- Serve cold.
