Lemongrass tea

I want to talk about this magical drink since quite a while ago but somehow I have been doing all other more complicated recipe than this one. I guess I just felt I should fully make use of free my time to make a more time-comsuming post.

So this is definitely the right time to write a very short post about this drink while waiting for L to pick me up from the lab at this hour. I find lemongrass tea is something magical as it is almost as plain as water that I can drink a few glasses in a short time, but the aroma of this herb gives me a very relaxing and calming effect that I can never get from any drink.  This version of lemongrass tea is not sweet at all, so you’ll need to add sugar to your taste if you are looking for a healthier substitute for soft drink. You’ll get a pleasant feeling in a hot day if you drink it cold. On the other hand, you’ll get that warm and comforting touch when you drink it hot in a cold day.

Alright, time’s up. L is here. I guess it would be quite sometime later for my next post. Hope everyone has a good second half year of 2014.

Try this drink!
