How to Make Lemongrass Ginger Tea

Step-by-Step

  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.
