Lemongrass Ginger tea recipe variations

Add a dash of lemon juice to enhance the flavour and to add an extra citrus note to your tea.

For a vegan version, swap maple syrup or agave for honey.

Few fresh mint leaves make a great addition and add a peppery flavour. Roughly chop the leaves and steep with lemongrass.

Follow the same process to make tea, let it cool down to room temperature and then chill it in the fridge for at least 3 hours or until you are ready to serve. Once chilled, pour tea over a glass of ice cubes. Garnish with a lemon wheel and enjoy your tea!

If you don’t have time to chill the tea then let it cool down slightly and pour in a glass over ice and enjoy!

Notes

Lemongrass is slightly crushed to release more flavours.

There are no specific measurements of the ingredients for this recipe, just add more or less to suit your taste. First, add a couple of lemongrass stalks and a small piece of ginger, once it is boiled taste it, add more if necessary.

I’ve used store-bought lemongrass stalks, you can use lemongrass leaves if you get them in stores or if you grow in your garden.

This recipe is a part of A to Z challenge, a challenge initiated by super active bloggers Jolly Makkar and Vidya Narayan on Facebook Group, wherein a group of bloggers come together and we choose key ingredients alphabetically to cook and post a dish every month. This month challenge is to make a dish with an ingredient name starting with letter ‘L‘ so I choose Lemongrass as a star ingredient.
