Lemongrass and Ginger Tea is on the menu for a great afternoon tea. Are we feeling like the English today? Not quite so over here. I just could not stop myself from sharing this wonderful tea that is so aromatic and delicious, lemongrass and ginger tea.

Lemongrass if you are wondering is not only used in cooking and baking. You can make tea with it. I am not referring to tea bags or dried leaves. I am talking about using the real thing. One of the reasons why I decided to share this recipe and talk about lemongrass it because of the many health benefits associated with the plant; and because I truly miss real teas made with fresh leaves and dried leaves that have been preserved naturally while growing up in Haiti.

Let me share with you a bit about lemongrass. Organicfacts.net states that the health benefits of lemongrass include relief from stomach disorders, insomnia, respiratory disorders, fever, aches, infections, rheumatism, and edema. The defensive antioxidant activity of the lemongrass herb protects against antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and helps in maintaining optimum cholesterol levels, cellular health, nervous system, healthy skin and immune system. Lemongrass is also effective in treating type 2 diabetes, cancer, and obesity, while also aiding in detoxification. It is extensively used in aromatherapy and helps to combat fatigue, anxiety and body odor.

Did you learn enough information that will entice you to try it at least once? Are you convinced that it is worth trying it today? Or if you have tried it, let say the dried version, would you buy fresh lemongrass? Wait! Don’t answer yet. I’d like you to try the fresh lemongrass and dried lemongrass and come back and share your experience. But please allow me to share my thoughts with you. Teas made with fresh leaves or fresh flowers and teas made with dried tea leaves or dried flowers will never have the same aromatic levels. Before you invest in boxes of tea bags or tins of dried tea leaves, visit your local market or supermarket, walk around a bit and see what they have, then make your choice. Buy fresh leaves, bunches or stalk of fresh ingredients, whatever how they categorize the leaves or plant, then leave smiling because you know you will be satisfied once you brewed that fresh pot of tea.
