Description

The best Lemongrass Tea is a citrusy delight to the senses. It is a Herbal Tea known and loved for its unique character and exceptional health benefits. You can buy Lemongrass Tea online or in-store here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, where everything is packed fresh to order. Doing so ensures not only quality but also consistency with every heavenly cuppa brewed. 

Lemongrass Tea Plant Botany 

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) is a tall perennial grass from the Cymbopogon genus of the Poaceae (grass) family. Native to Asia, it grows in thick clusters capable of reaching three metres (approx. 10 feet) high. It is perhaps most famous for excluding a potent citrus aroma. However, despite its name, it is not related to the lemon fruit, nor is it the same as Lemon Balm or Lemon Verbena Tea

Drinking Lemongrass Tea is especially popular in the African countries of Togo, Ghana and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It also has a close association with Brazilian folk medicine, where the Quilombo communities (people of African descent) consume it for boosted immunity. There, it has been dubbed “fever grass” or “fever Tea” for its ability to combat minor illnesses. 

Lemongrass Tea Caffeine

Is there caffeine in Lemongrass Tea? This is a stimulating chemical compound found naturally in around sixty plants, including Camellia sinensis (Tea) and Coffea (Coffee). Lemongrass, meanwhile, is not part of the caffeinated family and, as a result, is 100% free of the constituent. Therefore, it is an excellent choice if you’re pregnant or simply looking to cut down your caffeine intake. 

What Does Lemongrass Tea Taste Like?

Most important of all, of course, is its unparalleled ability to please the palate. When brewed to perfection, you can expect an enticing citrusy aroma that transcends upon the first sip. Expect, too, sweet and herbaceous undertones with a mild grassy note.

Smooth and refreshing from start to finish, you’re bound to love it. It’s time now to show you how to brew Lemongrass Tea.

How to Make Lemongrass Tea

  1. Buy a Tea Filter or Infuser and fill it with Lemongrass Loose Leaf Tea.
      
  2. Position the Tea-filled accessory in your cup.

  3. Pour in freshly boiled water at temperatures of 100°C.

  4. Allow it to steep for 5-10 minutes.

How to Serve: Unsurprisingly, a slice of lemon with the Tea is a most pleasant accompaniment. Alternatively, add a dollop of honey for extra sweetness or serve without additions. 

Tasting Notes: Imparts citrusy overtones and herbaceous undertones. 

What is Lemongrass Tea Good for?

A wealth of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants exist in your infusion. These include Vitamin A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine) and C, as well as calcium, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium and zinc. Such constituents combined can improve life in small yet significant ways, not least the following well-documented health benefits: 

  • Promoted Weight Loss.
  • Anxiety, Menstrual Cramp and Indigestion Relief. 
  • Improved Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Symptoms. 
  • Lowered “Bad” LDL Cholesterol. 
  • Reduced Blood Pressure.

  8. Not so taken with this one. No reflection on the quality, it's pure lemon grass pieces, but tasted more lemon rind like than fragrant lemon grass on first go for me. I'll try again and maybe mix it with another tea. Just might not be my taste.

  9. You only need a small quantity in an infuser to get a refreshing tea. Infuse for no more than 3-5 mins.
