This is a light and refreshing tea that nicely complements the complex flavors for which Thai cuisine is so well known. It can be served hot or iced, so it's great year-round and anytime of the day. And it's easy to prepare, too.

How to Make Lemongrass Ginger Tea


  1. Cut the bottom (2 to 4 inches) moist portion of each lemongrass stalk. Carefully crush or bruise each lemongrass piece to release the flavor. Cut into smaller 1-inch pieces.
  2. Bring water to boil in small saucepan. Add lemongrass, ginger and honey; boil 5 minutes. Strain mixture to remove lemongrass and ginger.
  3. Serve tea warm, or let cool a bit and transfer to a tall glass with several ice cubes. Drizzle with additional honey, if desired. Garnish with mint sprigs, and serve.
