  • Bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Allow it to simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour the tea through a fine sieve into mugs or cups.
  • Enjoy Ginger & Lemongrass Tea on its own or with your favourite snack. My favourite is to dunk buttered bread in it.


  • Use fresh mint or holy basil (tulsi) instead of lemongrass.
  • Use a sweetener of your choice, white sugar, brown sugar, honey or maple syrup.
  • Can enjoy this flavourful and healthy tea without milk. Can add lemon or orange juice if you wish.
  • Add some whisky and cinnamon instead of milk. Enjoy a hot toddy.
  • Best to use fresh ginger, but if you don't have any then use ginger powder.
