This was a basic lemongrass tea. It was good but needed a little something to either make it more lemony or zip it up somehow. The lemongrass flavour was a bit weak.

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.

I wanted a lemony tisane because my allergies have been terrible lately. I was hoping for a nice, subtle lemon flavor with a little bit of local honey added, and viola: a drink to soothe my sinuses. Instead, the flavor is so subtle that my plugged-up-nose just interprets it as cooked grass, honey added.
I normally mix it with my blacks, but I steeped it on it’s own for a ‘fair’ note.
Not bad for what it is. Grassier on it’s own than I expected. Absolutely love the smell, and it’s a pretty green. Citrus doesn’t come through as strongly as one would think by smelling it. For me it has an odd little ‘cooling’ effect around the tip of my tongue, not severe. A lot like I would get when I would use Blistex external analgesic lip balm and accidentally get some in my mouth, just a milder effect.
Sweetened (4 packets of Splenda):
Now it’s a bit like eating a flower (There are some little white ones that grow wild around here but I can’t remember the name, but this is like a lot of those). I think I used too much Splenda. I split a normal amount of tea between two cups but use the amount I would normally use for a full one.
Pretty drinkable either way. I like sweet things so naturally I prefer it sweetened, but I wouldn’t throw fits if I were offered it unsweetened as a guest.
Between the grassy taste and the cooling effect, it doesn’t get a whole lot from me, but I still love the smell and the slight lemony taste, and I can’t really fault a tea for being what it is.
