“Lemon Grass Tea”

“Lemon Grass Tea” by Anita Hirsch, M.S., R.D.

1    inch of fresh lemongrass, thinly sliced, or 1 teaspoon dried lemongrass

1    piece of crystallized ginger, about 1 inch square

 1   cup boiling water

 Place the sliced lemongrass in a cup.  Cut the ginger into smaller pieces and add to the cup.  Pour the boiling water over both and steep for 5 minutes.  (If you’re using dried lemongrass, steep a bit longer, up to 15 minutes, to extract the most flavour).  Strain and serve.   Make one cup.
