Ingredients

  • 6 stalks lemongrass light colored potion only
  • honey to taste
  • lemon and orange slices

Instructions

  • Bruise the lemongrass stalks by lightly pounding them then cut into short pieces. Put in a pot, pour in about four cups of water, bring to the boil, simmer for a few minutes then turn off the heat. Allow the lemongrass stalks to infuse and cool.
  • Strain the infusion into a pitcher, add enough honey to taste, add ice, garnish with lemon and orange slices. Stir well.

Notes

Now, just so it’s clear. Lemongrass iced tea is not real tea because it does not contain tea leaves. It is an infusion or what the French call a tisane. Click here for more about tea, infusions and tisane.
The lemon and orange slices aren’t merely ornamental. The juices and aroma will get mixed with the liquid after a few minutes.
