From Our Island to Your Table:
Lemongrass
Iced Tea

 

From garden to glass, our recipe for Lemongrass Iced Tea is a refreshing treat you can enjoy year-round. Simply boil a handful of fresh lemongrass stalks to infuse your favorite tea with the herb’s lemony aroma. Best of all, lemongrass is rich in antioxidants, making it more than a flavorful addition to tea. Its medicinal qualities range from reducing fever and relieving pain and swelling to curbing coughs and colds.



Ingredients:

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups roughly chopped lemongrass stalks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • lemon or lime wedge for garnish (optional)


Instructions:

  1. Coarsely chop the bottom 4 inches of the lemongrass stalks.
  2. Trim the tops, remove the outside leaves, and save for garnish.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring to water to a boil.
  4. Add in tea bags and chopped lemongrass; remove from heat and let steep for 10 minutes.
  5. Strain; sweeten to taste with sugar, refrigerate until ready to serve.
  6. Fill tall chilled glasses with ice; pour the tea over the ice.
  7. Garnish each glass with a lemongrass top and/a lemon or lime wedge.
