Ingredients

  • 2 C hot boiling water
  • ¼ C fresh lemongrass stalk chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 inch ginger peeled and sliced
  • 2-3 tablespoon honey or sweetener to taste

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, combine hot water, chopped lemongrass, lime juice, ginger and honey.
  • Give everything a stir and bring it up to a boil.
  • Reduce to low heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  • If adding green tea leaves, remove from heat, add in the tea, cover with a lid and let it steep for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Strain the lemongrass tea through a sieve and enjoy hot, or let it cool completely to enjoy iced.
  • Tip: Don't discard the lemongrass, lime and ginger just yet -- throw it into a large pot and fill with cold water. Bring it to a low simmer and it will infuse your home with an all-natural scent.
