I'm totally in love with lemongrass. I purchased a little 4 dollar plant at my local plant nursery and in just 2 years, it's grown into quit a substantial plant. It has even survived many winter freezes. Adapted from the Lemongrass, Mint, and Ginger Iced Tea recipe from the novel, Sweet Life, by Mia King.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut lemongrass into 2” inch lengths, then crush with the flat side of a large knife.
  2. In a 2-quart pan, bring 4 cups water, sugar, ginger and lemongrass to a boil. Remove from heat and add tea leaves or tea bags; let steep about 4 minutes or until desired flavor and color are achieved. Let cool, about 30 minutes.
  3. Pour through a fine strainer into a glass pitcher. Cover and chill until cold, at least 2 hours. Pour into tall glasses filled with ice and garnish with a spring of mint.
