These neat, short stalks of lemongrass have refreshing, pleasant aroma. One cup of bright yellowish sweet lemongrass tea infusion is a refreshing accompaniment to many different types of cuisines not only for its zesty flavor reminiscent of lemon but also for its health benefits.
Invigorating lemon scent with evident fresh flavor giving you feeling of going back to nature.
Yunnan province is located in the far southwest of the China, bordering on three countries (Vietnam, Laos and Burma) of Southeast Asian, which is assumed to be homeland of lemongrass. Like other parts of the world, both the geographical and climate conditions in Yunnan provide excellent conditions for lemongrass. Yunnan has a generally mild climate with pleasant and fair weather because of the province's location on south-facing mountain slopes influenced by both the Pacific and Indian oceans. Much of the province lies within the subtropical highland or humid subtropical zone with mild to warm winters, and tempered summers, except in the almost tropical south. As the China’s most diverse province, Yunnan is known as the fine fame “kingdom of plants “and “kingdom of animals“ and it’s capital “Kunming” also called “spring city and flower city “due to its warm weather all the year around.
Lemon grass, a perennial herb native to Southeast Asia, as its name suggests it has a strong flavor of lemon aroma and fascicled long leaves which can reach up to 150cm. Lemon grass is common in tropical regions and just due to its tropical nature, lemongrass usually only survives in sunny, warm and humid environment. In addition to as a common source of herbal worldwide, the lemon grass is also used widely used in Southeast Asia cooking for its health benefits and natural lemon taste.
Herbal tea refers to any beverage made from the infusion or decoction of plant material including flower, stem, or leaf even plant root. These 100% natural ingredients without any artificial colors and caffeine content can guarantee its good quality. So we can say these good-looking herbal teas, being rich in nutrients (such as Vitamin B, C, and E), are not only pleasant to look and but also healthy to drink.

* Required Fields
I tried some of this tea and was very happy to have found an herbal tea I actually like. This one has a lovely aroma and the flavor is smooth, gently lemony and almost sweet. It most certainly is NOT sour. A tiny bit of honey and it is sweeter yet. I feel it is so good it does not really need sweeteners, but a touch of honey occasionally is nice. I do get more than one infusion out of this. I use purified water that is just shy of boiling and steep at least 3 minutes first infusion, 5 minutes for second and third. I imagine it would be quite refreshing, cold, too. Check out the research with lemongrass tea and health benefits. It may act as a cancer prevention (Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry), as well as anti-microbial properties to fight things like strep infections, fungal infections, etc. Some research shows it may help with diabetes and heart disease (Journal of Ethnopharmacology). The i nternational plant medicine journal "Planta Medica" showed that the essential oils found in lemongrass are able to suppress malaria by 62 to 87 percent in mice. In any case, it is a very nice herbal tea and I am going to purchase more of it.
It's not a surprise that this tea is really lemony. It makes a nice ice tea. I like to mix this one with other teas, it is pretty sour as such. It has really nice aroma of fresh lemon and hint of ginger.
