Native to Sri Lanka, this hand-cut lemongrass tisane (an herbal tea) comes from the island's central highlands in Uva Province. It has been used in cooking and medicine in south Asia for more than 2,000 years. Unlike tea, lemongrass is naturally caffeine-free. Our Ceylon Lemongrass has intense lemon and refreshing minty flavors and it can be brewed several times. It is grown organically, but not yet certified.
Amount: 1 teaspoon of loose lemongrass per cup of water.
