Lemon Grass Tea (Cerium Limao)

Yield:
6 servings
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 3 stalks fresh lemon grass (available at Asian and some supermarkets) (see Note)
  • Raw sugar, honey, or other sweetener, as desired
  • Twists of lemon (optional)
Directions
  • In a large teapot, combine the lemon grass with about 6 cups of rapidly boiling, fresh water. Cover the teapot with a thick towel and allow to steep for 5 to 10 minutes, or until very aromatic. Pour into teacups, sweeten and serve with a twist of lemon, if desired.

  • Note: You can use the tough outer skins and upper stalks of the lemon grass for this aromatic tea, saving the tender inner stalk for slicing into stews, sautes, and soups.
