Lemongrass is an integral part of many food cultures throughout the tropics. Properly dried lemongrass leaves impart a complex citrus aroma with accents of rose, geranium and wild ginger. One day while eating in the village where our Yunnan teas are harvested, we discovered the local cuisine used a unique and wildly aromatic lemongrass. We encouraged the local people to increase their yields and helped them develop a drying technique to capture its fresh aroma. Our efforts to commercialize the indigenous herbs of the tea villages where we work increase incomes and product diversity within the local economy.
