This lemongrass tea recipe is simple, aromatic, sweet and is made from grass. Lemongrass tea can be enjoyed warm on a cold winter day, or cold on a hot summer day. This is a beverage that works both ways, so you can choose it based on the temperature that feels right to you.

Where To Find Lemongrass

Lemongrass is a regular part of Asian cuisine and so your best luck for finding affordable fresh lemongrass is to visit your local Asian food market. If you aren’t so lucky to have one nearby that carries this fragrant grass, you might still find lemongrass in the produce section of your local grocery. You may also find frozen prepared lemongrass in the freezer section of your grocery.

Preparing the Fresh Lemongrass

Fresh lemongrass stalks can be tough to cut through, but it is definitely much easier if you have a good sharp knife. When I’m preparing lemongrass for tea-making with my nutrition students, I generally start breaking it apart with my hands. I find it easiest to break the lemongrass into small pieces near the base of the stalk. After you’ve broken it down then the layers of the grass are easy to peel apart making them even easier to cut into smaller pieces with scissors or a knife. I generally prefer to use kitchen scissors to cut the grass into smaller pieces that will fit into tea bags or into my large tea kettle.

Ingredients for Lemongrass Tea

To make a pot of lemongrass tea to serve two people, I use the following ingredients:

  • 2 lemongrass shoots
  • 2 cup water
  • 1 cup coconut milk, unsweetened
  • 1 tsp. agave nectar

Feel free to use any plant milk you have or prefer in lieu of the unsweetened coconut milk. If you are using sweetened plant milk you might want to forgo the agave.
