Teatulia Lemongrass Herbal Infusion

sampleI’ve had this tea for a while but I was hesitant to try it because I’ve never been a fan of lemongrass. All of the teas I have tried were either very weak or tasted like a combination of medicine and Pine-Sol. The dry leaves consisted of chopped up blades of grass in varying shades of yellow, green and brown. I brewed this tea with an infuser basket using 212 degree water for 3 minutes.

I have to say that this is probably the only lemongrass teasan that I have ever actually liked. It was surprisingly refreshing and the lemony fresh taste that I was expecting was rather sweet and mellow. I’m not so sure about drinking it but I think it would interesting to use it in some sort of recipe. I wouldn’t go out of my way to get some but I would probably recommend this tea.
