OK, so Mountain Rose Herbs sells this as a bulk herb rather than as a tea, so the smallest amount I could buy was 4 oz. That’s A LOT of lemongrass! Luckily, it makes a superb tea with multiple infusions. The smell of this herb is wonderful. Just a light, bright, sunny aroma that makes me smile. The aroma of the brewing tea is just as inviting. The lemon aroma is more subtle than the grassy, more vegetal aroma surrounding it, but it’s there, and makes me think of sunny Spring and Summer days. I love to mix this with mint for a lovely blended tea.
I leave it to you to determine the temperature of the water and how long to steep it. I’ve steeped it for 2-3 minutes using boiling water (very enjoyable), and I’ve steeped it using very hot water from my thermos and letting it steep for 3 – 5 minutes- very enjoyable as well. I have yet to sweeten it with anything. This is definitely a favorite for me, both alone and in blends.
