Lemon Grass And Ginger Tea

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Consumed hot, this tea is so good on a winter's day. A real pick-me-up. You can even chill it for that extra zing. However, take note it looks alot like apple juice so if you do plan to store it in the refridgerator, let your nearest and dearest know what it is beforehand so you don't go beserk when they spit it out "Mummy, the apple juice has gone bad!" and waste cups of the precious liquid. Lemon grass is expensive and hard to come by in Beijing. I have to make a trip all the way to a special import supermarket just for them.

Lemon Grass and Ginger Tea

You Need:

6 cups of water
4-5 stalks of lemon grass, cut into thin slices
1cm knob of ginger (I used more, I love my ginger!)
rock sugar

You Do:

  1. Fill a heavy bottom pot with water.

  2. Add in lemon grass and ginger, bring to a boil for a couple of minutes.

  3. Lower flame and let simmer for around 15-20 minutes. Add rock sugar to taste. Cover the pot while simmering.

  4. Turn off flame, strain and enjoy. It's that simple!

Thanks to Irene for the recipe.

Hi chumpman, thanks for dropping by!

If you love ginger tea with rock sugar, you will like this. The lemongrass gives it a new dimension.

I use lemongrass to marinate chicken and pork too. It smells SO GOOD on the barbecue grill in the summer.
