Lemongrass-Ginger Green Tea

This lemon-scented green tea with a touch of ginger is a great twist on the ordinary. Not being a tea drinker, this interested even me and kept my attention for a few glasses. And that's saying something.

  • 10 cups of water
  • 1 bunch of dried lemongrass leaves
  • 5 thick slices or more of fresh ginger
  • 5 green tea bags


  1. In a large pot, add the water and place over high heat. Immediately drop in the lemongrass leaves and ginger and stir well to combine.
  2. Let come to a boil and as soon as it does, turn off the heat and add the green tea bags. Allow to steep for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Once it becomes the color you like, remove the tea bags and begin to remove the lemongrass and sliced ginger.
  4. Pour tea into a half gallon container and place in the fridge to cool and chill thoroughly. Pour over an ice filled glass, add sweetener of choice, if desired, and relax.
