Lemongrass has a sweet lemon taste profile. Often used in teas to impart a lemon character without the tangy flavor. Open a packet and inhale its subtle yet complex aroma. This perennial herb, native to Southeast Asia is noted for its lemony scent and ginger undertones. Its lemon character is due to a high concentration of citral, its main biological component.
Hot tea brewing method: Put 1 slightly heaping tsp of loose tea for each 7-9oz/200-260ml of water in the teapot. Pour the boiled water over tea. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time, the better the flavor as more fruit or herb flavor is extracted). Garnish and sweeten to taste.
