 (22 reviews)

type: herbal

origin: thailand

caffeine: no-caffeine

price level: $$$$

A native of Southeast Asia, Lemongrass was introduced to the American palate with the growing popularity of Thai cuisine. It has a delicate Meyer lemon taste, with slight hint of sweet ginger, and very aromatic floral fragrance. Smooth and fragrant when steeped as a simple cup of tea, soft mouthfeel and clean finish. Greatly uplifting, yet naturally caffeine free. Steep at 212°F for 5-10 minutes

      A nice cup of sunshine to sip any time of day! The lemongrass leaves are bright green with a strong, refreshing aroma. The tea steeps to the palest yellow, but there is nothing pale about its flavor! The flavor is bright and citrusy, without the tartness of lemon. No sweetener is needed, but a drop of honey turns the cup into a liquid lemon drop. This tea stands up to multiple infusions. It would be nice for accenting other teas, when you want a bit of lemon flavor.

      It’s ok. Nothing to rave about. Not very lemony. Needs something else. Probably a good sick tea.

      It's lemongrass, no complaints here, good mixed with other teas

      It's lemongrass. Lemony with a bit of natural sweetness. I love the smell of it dry or steeped. One of the best things about it is it's versatility! Good on its own, and in blends. Great hot or iced. Of course it goes well with sugar, but it also plays nice with milk

      This was an amazing lemon grass tea. I use it to amp up some other teas

      Lemongrass isn't my thing - I really prefer real lemon/lemon flavor. It's not the worst, but I feel that this herb is included in so many teas to give it a lemony flavor that it gives things a very "generic herbal" taste.

      A lovely lemongrass. So bright and lemony, just the way I like it. It's also pretty useful in the kitchen, and is wonderful with some lavender.

      Did 212 F for about 15-20 minutes. So it was pretty strong for me. Pretty strong lemon flavor. Just what you'd expect from lemongrass

      This is a super mild tea. It's lemon, but not overwhelmingly so. No savory at all, not grassy. Just mildly lemon.

      I love lemon tea so I knew this was going to be a little ray of sunshine on a cold winter day! Pleasant sip!

      Delicious tisane with a strong lemon aroma and wonderful, naturally sweet lemon flavor. No bitterness or savory tastes. Just a nice lemon cup.

      I really like this tea. It is good by itself. It is also good mixed with green or ginger tea.

      Best lemongrass tea I have had, subtle Meyer lemon flavour.

      Pure dried lemongrass, I use this as tea and cooking ingredient

      Good tea for a cold day or when you're sick, helps clear your ingestion and warm your belly

      A light and lovely herbal, the smell reminds me of fruit loops. Combines well with other teas too to give a bit of a lemon kick.

      You can't go wrong with a standard lemongrass! So healthy!

      Love the lemongrass flavor. I like it combined with lemon tea too.

      This can stand by itself or mixed in blends. Perfect for those under-the-weather days

    • 

      This is a good tea to have as a base for other flavors. It's simple and light and is nice on its own, but it's much better blended with other teas that may need a bit more of a lemony flavor.

      This is great to mix with other teas or to drink on its own.

    • 

      This is a very fresh lemon grass tea. That being said, I don't think lemon grass works well on its own, as it as such a subtle flavor. Its great in blends, but doesn't have enough weight to stand as its own tea
