Lemongrass Tea

This summer I was hooked to a bottled lemongrass drink that sold mainly in health food stores, I had to get a bottle or two whenever I see it in the stores.

This is the tea that I love, love --

To my surprise,  A too likes the tea, one day he was having sore throat and we were out doing some grocery shopping, I bought a bottle of this tea and he asked to try it, I let him and he gulped down almost half bottle! His throat gets much better the next day.

Since he and I loved the tea so much, I made it at home and enjoyed the tea over one hot summer afternoon.

3-4 stalks of lemongrass (remove outer layer, cleaned and sliced thinly)
1 liter water

1. Boil lemongrass in water for a good 10-15 minutes, switch off the stove and let it steep further for another 10 minutes.

Serve as it is with some ice cubes or add some honey to it if you prefer.
