Dried lemon grass leaves to make a zesty, refreshing drink that is highly satisfying both hot and cold. A native of South East Asia, Lemon Grass was introduced to these parts with the growing popularity of Thai cuisine. It has a light lemony taste, with slight hint of ginger. And is known to lift a sagging spirit, as well as aid digestion. Recent studies also show that Lemon Grass has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Best of all, it tastes great. If you have yet to try it, we recommend it highly. Naturally caffeine-free.
Adagio Teas has become one of the most popular destinations for tea online. Its products are available online at www.adagio.com and in many gourmet and health food stores.

another nightly cup of herbal. fresh and warm in the late evening.
sorry i’ve been neglecting you steepster :(
but lately i’m really into my dance class and finishing up marathon training and my new kindle and not hanging up my laundry and never getting enough sleep instead.
Arrrr, it be Talk Like a Pirate Day, mateys! I sailed the Seven Seas today, and came home too late for messin’ about with the likes of the Captain or Mermaids, so I be settlin’ for a tisane fer tonight. Gots to swing in me bunk in a few hours. Arrrrr!
I’d been seein’ here and tharrrr mentions o’ this herb called lemon grass. On me last raid o’ Adagio’s site, I raided a sample fer me treasure chest!
Smells o’ lemon, indeed it does. And looks like the grass what’s been stuffed in my mattress in the Captain’s quarters. Smells better though. I supposed they washed it, shiver me timbers!
Brewed, it be golden, and it tastes fairly good. Not a keg o’ rum by any means, but tolerable. Definitely something I’d take from a rich merchant vessel sailin’ back fro’ tha Indies!
I think this might be the last one that I’m trying from Tea Box B… it has been fun! I just spent the day choosing teas, putting them in the box. There is so much more tea I want to add… no roooom! Even though I removed two sandwich bags full of teas.
Anyway, this one is pleasant! I can see where the lemon in lemongrass comes from. It’s fresh and sweet… I’m surprised lemongrass hasn’t been used more in other blends! The perfect finish to my teabox sipping! Now to get it in the mail at some point…
I ate too much tonight at the Italian place we went to. Ugh. Still, I am celebrating a 10 lb weight loss as of yesterday, and I don’t think one night is going to be enough to sabotage it completely. I’m also feeling pretty good because I finished a pro bono project today and turned in my research. And I’m looking forward to going to sleep as soon as I say that I had sort of been hoarding this, which is the last of the Adagio herbal samples, and now I remember why.
It deserves a higher rating and I’m giving it a bump. It’s a very gentle, almost vague, herbally lemon, not a fruity one, but it doesn’t push any of my buttons. No bitterness, no soapiness, no unmitigated tartness, no random un-named unpleasantness.
In the grand scheme of things it’s something I wouldn’t mind having in my cupboard, but not until I’ve determined there isn’t a pure lemongrass I like better from another vendor. (Perhaps lemongrass is lemongrass is lemongrass, but how will I know unless I try ALL THE LEMONGRASS?)
Oh my gosh. So I was drinking tea earlier and my roommate dropped her pretzels and I exclaimed “FOOD FELL!!!” right when our other roommate and her boyfriend walked in! And both of them were all “Kyra, are you drinking caffeine again?” and I was all… no…
I told them that it was 7pm and so no more caffeine for me and I held up my package of Lemongrass. And then Levi decided to give me some chocolate and Laura was all “Levi, no. She can’t have any more sugar”
I’m seriously laughing right now because I totally act like a 5 year old. We totally had this conversation with another one of my roommates last night ahha.
But Laura and Levi left and Laura said she’ll be back sometime around midnight and I was al “You bet I’ll be up :))”
So yeah. Caffeine turns me into a 5 year old.
Luckily Monica and I are going to have a matcha party right before her 9am class.
OKAY TEA. LEMONGRASS.
I’ve never had straight lemongrass. I’ve blended this into my chamomile or minty teas, but never lemongrass alone. It smells like… curry? No. Like some sort of zesty spice that’s really good but I can’t put my finger on it right now.
It tastes really good as well!
I didn’t know how to make this tea though. I thought that 3g would be a bit much since it’s so light, but Ido tend to like my herbals and rooibos more flavourful. So I just did 2g in my smaller teacup, that way if I want more, resteeping it would be easy peasy, lemon squeezey.
I AM LAUGHING SO HARD RIGHT NOW. I really didn’t want to make dinner tonight. Like it’s dead week so I’m just worried about school and it’s already 8pm and I don’t have the time to make dinner! If I can live on tea and air alone, that’d be great.
I remembered that I had a slice of chocolate cake in the fridge so… looks like it’s cake for dinner :) I’m the definition of a 5year old child right now.
