Dried Lemongrass leaves make a zesty, refreshing drink that is highly satisfying both hot and cold. A native of South East Asia, Lemongrass was introduced to the USA with the growing popularity of Thai cuisine. It has a light lemony taste, with slight hint of ginger. It is known to lift a sagging spirit, as well as aid digestion. Recent studies also show that Lemongrass has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Best of all, it tastes great.
