Lemongrass tea
by Paulette on Nov 26, 2013

Cut lemongrass makes the perfect tea. Has a lot of flavor. My favorite hot drink.

lemongrass great in chicken soup!
by Jill on Oct 25, 2013

Lemongrass is delicious in chicken soup, as well. Add it in a way that it can be strained out of the broth at the end of cooking. It gives a subtle but noticeable flavor. We tried this in Cambodia, and now make it this way for a change of pace.

I like this
by Ela on Dec 12, 2012

Lemongrass is very calming. I like it a lot, and when I make Shoshanna's spicy lemonade recipe, I infuse the hot water with some lemongrass because of its soothing properties. Just remember that when you steep lemongrass tea, keep it covered so that the beneficial oils don't escape through the steam. This makes a relaxing nighttime tea, along with chamomile.
