Lemongrass with its pungent flavor is fairly common as a hot tea ingredient. But if you add some wild flower honey and green tea leaves then ice it you’ll have a refreshing and healthy summer drink.
To make: simply rinse 1 stock of lemongrass in cool water, fold the stock into a bundle which will bruise the stock and allow the aromatics to escape. Add the bundle to 1 quart of boiling water along with 3 bags of your favorite green tea. Stir in 1 tbsp of your local honey or a good squeeze from the “honey bear.” Steep until tepid and pour over ice.
Nothing could be easier!
Variations: Add a 1/2-inch knob of ginger or a couple allspice berries to the boiling water mix .
