    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup plus 4 cups plus 3 cups water
    • 1 large stalk lemongrass, dry tops and tough outer leaves removed, stalk cut into small rounds (about 1/4 cup)
    • 1 inch x 2 inch knob ginger, peeled and chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
    • 4 mild black tea bags (such as Darjeeling or Assam-I use decaf)
    • ice, for serving

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, 1/2 cup water, lemongrass and ginger. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to the dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow the lemongrass and ginger to steep in the sugar syrup for at least half an hour. For more pronounced flavor, place in the refrigerator and allow to steep several hours or overnight.
    2. 2
      Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the teabags, turn off the heat, and allow the tea to steep for 5 minutes. Squeeze out the teabags and discard. Pour the brewed tea into a heat-proof pitcher.
    3. 3
      Strain the lemongrass ginger syrup through a small sieve, pressing on the solids to extract as much flavor as possible. Discard the solids, and add the syrup to the pitcher of tea. Add three cups of cold water to the tea, and stir well. Chill the tea, and serve over ice. Enjoy!

      Being a family of iced-tea lovers, this didn't last very long in our home (especially thanks to son #2 who drank most of it all by himself!). I used Darjeeling. I felt the flavours of the lemongrass and ginger really did make this a 'cut above' regular iced tea. Good instructions. We sweetened a bit with sugar.

      This was very tasty. I made 1/4 recipe for one glass. I overcooked the sugar syrup so it was like taffy but I just warmed it up and put it in the iced tea. Made for ZWT9.
