The lemony flavour was being used to flavor everything from curry to Thai milk shakes. Lemongrass was practically selling itself! Aside from its myriad uses as a culinary ingredient, the people of Thailand have for centuries prized the plant for its many purported medicinal uses. Thai folk remedies for ailments ranging from fevers to muscle cramp all use the herb as a base ingredient.
HOT BREWING METHOD: Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
