One of the unique herbs produced by our organically certified farmer is Lemongrass. Lemongrass is a herb native to Sri Lanka and South India, although it is currently produced in a variety of nations throughout the world. Our farmers in Morogoro grow organic lemongrass, which we buy from them and process into a ready-to-eat product. When the lemongrass is harvested, it goes through different processes before being used by the end consumer, like cutting, washing, drying, and then milling ready for packaging.
Lemongrass tea has a wonderful lemony flavor without the sour bite, yet even with its unusual flavor, lemongrass has a long list of health advantages. We can only say this tea is unique based on the smell, taste, and experience. Lemongrass tea is made from lemongrass cuts and served hot or cold. Because it includes inflammation-fighting chemicals, one of the advantages is that it reduces inflammation in the body. Another advantage being stress releaser, reduction in blood pressure to increased immune health.
But here today we are going to make a natural herbal sun tea from the dry organic lemon grass cuts, inspired by our partner, Kazi Yetu, who made a delicious sun tea and asked us to try it out. Drinking lemongrass tea is not only healthy; it's also tasty.

How to Make Lemongrass Sun Tea
Lemongrass tea can be served as iced tea, but the water should be boiled first and we will let the water cool off a bit to room temperature before serving it with ice.
Start by adding 1 full spoon of dried lemongrass cut into a mason jar, then dried mint grass for flavor, ginger and lemon to give it more taste. Leave it in the Sun for about 4-5 hours until all the flavors have been extracted from the herbs.
Now, pour the mixture into the glass with ice ready to drink. Add sweeteners such as honey or brown sugar and garnish with a lime if desired.
This herbal tea is a wonderful delight especially when you pair it with a bit of lemon flavor and moderate sweetness. Make yourself a cup of tea and savor this energizing herbal blend.
