Lemongrass Ginger Tea

The first time I tasted lemongrass put me in a really calm state, soothing mood and engraved a lasting memory. I remember the time where I stayed in a spa resort filled with lemongrass; lemongrass drinks, lemongrass lotion and even lemongrass soap. I came home longing for more lemongrass drinks, which inspired me to create my own Lemongrass Drink recipe. During the process of making the drink, the aroma lingered in my head filling it with memories reminiscing about good times I had in the resort.

 Lemongrass Ginger Tea

10 Stalks of Lemongrass, preferably fresh
1 Inch Ginger, peeled
1 Pandan (Screwpine) Leaf, tied
4 Cups of Water
Palm Sugar (Gula Melaka) or Brown Sugar, to taste

1. Slice lemongrass and ginger thinly to increase surface area to extract flavour.
2. Boil lemongrass, ginger, pandan leaf and water together for at least 25 minutes.
3. Add palm sugar to taste until dissolved.

*Makes a nice warming welcome drink
**Served with lemongrass for a nice decoration
***Boil the mixture longer for a more flavourful aroma
****A nutritive drink that helps stomach upsets, headaches, and many more
