Lemongrass Tea is an easy-to-make delicious herby beverage that leaves you refreshed after having a cup of tea.



3-4 Dried Lemongrass Stalks or

1 tbsp Tea Leaves or
2 Tea Bags

1 tbsp Grated Ginger, optional

1/2 cup Milk

2 tsp Sugar or Honey


Bruise the lemongrass stalk a little with the side of a knife. This will help infuse the flavor more on the tea.

Pour water into a pan and add freshly cut lemongrass. 

Add loose tea/tea leaves/tea bags to the water and bring to a boil. If you are adding ginger, now is the time. Add chopped or grated ginger to the boiling water.

Simmer for about 7-10 minutes. 

Add milk and simmer for a few more minutes. 

Add sweetener of your choice. You may use honey, sugar, stevia, or erythritol.
