Lemongrass tea is made from the dried leaves or stalks of the lemongrass plant “Cymbopogon”. This tropical plant grows in warmer temperatures and is native to South Asia. It is cultivated for tea as well as essential oils and is greatly used in Thai cuisine.
Lemongrass is a slightly spicy herb with a soft lemon taste that is great for digestion and mental awareness. Lemongrass blends well with other types of teas; it can be used for adding an aromatic touch to black tea or to modify the color of Butterfly Pea Flower tea since lemongrass contains enough acidity in its leaves to turn this blue tea into a lively purple.
