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.

Thank you! Thank you! I placed my order on Wednesday and it was here Saturday. I had been out of my favorite tea, Rise and Shine, for a little while and really missed it. I just love this tea. I have yet to kick the coffee habit, but after a cup or two of coffee in the morning I make a pot of Rise and Shine right in my coffee pot. I drink it through out the day and make another smaller pot in the evening, using the same tea leaves for my husband and I to enjoy after dinner. I even make an altered version of the tea for my children. I leave out the Ginkgo and Bilberry and add Cinnamon and sweeten with raw honey. They call it cinnamon tea. I call it Rise and Shine for kids. Even my two year old asks for tea in her sippy cup. And whenever they've been exposed to an illness, I just add a spoonful of Echinacea to the pot. In warmer weather I make the pot the same but allow it to cool to make iced tea. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tea.
