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.
another great tea zwt9
Loved this tea!!! I was at my Mom's when I made this and only had use of a microwave, but an overnight steeping of ginger and lemongrass must have done the trick! I will definitely make this again - over and over considering the abundance of lemongrass growing along my driveway! Made for ZWT9 - Gourmet Goddesses.
I had bought some lemongrass at the Des Moines Farmers Market last year. The lady told me to clean it and freeze it, and it would keep (vacuum sealed). So I've been using it as needed and it still has a nice flavor. I only used maybe a tablespoon of sugar as I don't like sweet tea. But that was still enough to make the tea sweet.

Made for the Goddesses of ZWT-9, this tea is excellent. All of the ingredient elements work seamlessly to make the outcome flavorful & refreshing. I did add fresh mint from my SIL's garden because I favor it so much. To be truthful, I am not at all sure what kind of tea I used, but I do know it was authentic Chinese tea brought to me by my DH's father who spent 3 wks in China as part of a tour grp (See container & dried tea in pic). He will be pleased to know that I put some of it to such good use. Thx for sharing your recipe w/me.
