Last week when we went on a drive to Valparai, I found wild lemongrass and I was very happy. Wild lemongrass has a strong beautiful smell. I have been reading about the benefits of lemongrass tea and even one of our relatives, who drinks this tea regularly was urging me to try it for a long time.
When I first made it, I was so happily surprised at how good it tasted. I am so hooked on to this lemongrass tea, that I have started growing lemongrass in my garden. Lemongrass tea has a long list of health benefits, if consumed regularly. To make this tea, take lemongrass and cut the bottom fleshy part into small pieces.
Pound the cut pieces and ginger in a mortar and pestle. Boil water and add the pounded mixture, let it boil till the color of the water changes. Remove, strain and add honey and drink it warm. Lemongrass and ginger are a match made in heaven and I strongly insist that you try this lemongrass tea at home.

How To Make Lemongrass Tea:
1. Cut the required amount of lemongrass. Since I got it from the wild, the stems are very thin, but the smell is very very strong.
2. Cut the white bottom part of the lemon grass into small pieces. Take the required amount of ginger and remove the skin.
3. Pound the lemongrass and ginger in a mortar and pestle. Don’t pound it too finely.
4. Boil water, once it boils add the pounded mixture.
5. Once the color of the water changes and the whole kitchen is filled with lemongrass aroma remove and strain. Add honey to taste. Voila! Your lemongrass tea is ready!
- Always use fresh lemongrass stems while making this tea.
- It tastes very good, even without honey.
