Ingredients

  • 4 stalks lemongrass
  • 1 liter water
  • 4 teaspoons sugar or 4 teaspoons honey (very optional)

Directions

  • 1 Boil 1 liter water.
  • 2 While the water is boiling, clean the stalks of lemongrass under running water then cut and discard the green upper part of the stalks, you only want to use the whitest part.
  • 3 Next, using a meat tenderizer or hammer of any sort gently smash the stalks on your cutting board.
  • 4 Place the smashed stalks of lemon grass inside the tea pot along with the peeled ginger if you decide to use it.
  • 5 Pour the boiling water over and allow to steep for 5 minutes.
  • 6 Pour into tea cups and serve with or without sweetener (the honey or sugar).
  • 7 In Bali, thistea would not be served with sugar, it tastes fabulous just as it is.
  • 8 Tip: As with iced tea, thistea can be served cold.
