Lemongrass Iced Tea


Though this refreshing drink doesn't use any tea leaves, we love the mild lemony flavor. It's perfect for a hot day and the mint or basil leaves are a great addition!

Lemongrass Iced Tea
(makes approximately 4 cups)

4 cups water
2-3 lemongrass stalks
1 tablespoon honey (or to taste)
1 lime
basil or mint


Using the back of a large knife, crush the lemongrass stalks to release the aromatics.

In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Drop in the lemongrass stalks and boil for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook 10 minutes.

Stir in the honey and remove from heat. Pour into a large glass container and refrigerate 1-2 hours until cool.

Fill glasses with ice and pour in the tea. Garnish with lime wedges and basil or mint leaves.
