Ginger and Lemon Grass Green Tea Recipe

Image

In my last January Favourites post, I mentioned my love for ginger and it was requested that I share my recipe with you all. I am also addicted to tea, and think that drinking this drink is a lovely way to take in some healthy ingredients without much effort.

There are many benefits to consuming ginger, as it aids digestion and helps to give you a boost of energy. Similarly, lemon grass is healthy because it is a good source of iron and vitamin C. Finally, green tea is a widely used natural anti-oxidant and is absolutely yummy.

To make this tea you will need:

  • Fresh ginger
  • Fresh lemongrass
  • Green teabags/loose green tea (optional)
  • Boiling water
  • A teapot/tea strainer

This recipe will easily serve 2, and make around 4 mugs of tea.

Step 1: Peel the ginger and cut into medium sized pieces.ย 

Step 2: Lightly bruise the lemongrass with the back of your knife and cut into similar sized pieces.

Step 3: Get the green tea leaves out of 2 teabags or measure out 4 teaspoons of green tea.

Step 4: Add it all into your teapot or into separate strainers and add the boiling water.

Step 5: Leave to steep for at least five minutes, you can leave it in for longer depending on how strong you like your tea.

Step 6: Strain your tea.

Step 7: Enjoy your tea!

  1. also you have a white colored ginger, but we in Pakistan have Yellow/golden ginger.
    is it ok to use yellow ginger?

    1. I really hope you like it ๐Ÿ™‚ if you don’t like green tea, ginger and lemongrass are strong enough flavours to have with just boiling water but you’d have to leave them to steep for longer. Trying other herbal teas or chamomile might be a nice alternative too ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  2. Ooh this looks good! I might try this, but without the green tea as I’m not a tea fan. But ginger is definitely a favorite of mine. Thanks for this post x
