Lemon grass, also known as citronella is a herb from the grass family, native to South East Asia and later introduced to many tropical regions around the world. It grows in dense clumps and the fragrant leaves have been cut to a size that is perfect to be brewed.
On being brewed, the infusion is bright yellow with an aroma of fresh lemon. It is a crisp , mildly sweet tea which features a slight lemony taste without the astringent or tangy notes of an actual lemon.
