Slice lemongrass stalks lengthwise and crush them slightly.
Bring water to a rolling boil in a saucepan, add lemongrass stalk, ginger and simmer for 10 minutes.
Pour the tea in a cup, mix in honey and enjoy hot and aromatic tea.
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.
