teatulialemongrassTeatulia’s Lemongrass Herbal Infusion intrigued me.  I love the addition of lemongrass in tea blends, but I wasn’t so sure it would make an excellent tisane on its own.  My main concern was that the drink would be overly lemony without another ingredient to balance out the flavor. I was excited to try it, but in my mind this drink was either going to soar high or fail terribly.  I didn’t think there would be a middle ground.

The lemongrass looked similar to small reed fragments, with colors that included light to deep greens, pale yellow, and brown.  The smell was surprisingly sweet and slightly grassy, with very little lemony scent.  The lack of a strong lemongrass presence really threw me off and I wondered what the tisane would taste like.  To make a cup I followed the website recommendations and used one heaping teaspoon in boiling water with a two-minute steep.  This produced a pale yellow cup with an amazingly potent lemony scent.  The once dull colored pieces of lemongrass had turned into vibrant greens and brilliant yellows and were equally fragrant.

The flavor of the tisane was fresh and bright with a strong lemony flavor.  The cup had a subtle sweetness to it as well and I didn’t find the need to add anything to enhance my enjoyment.  However, if you prefer a sweeter cup, I think this tisane would lend itself well to your sweetener of choice.  The iced version was even more refreshing.  The lemongrass shined though with amazing clarity and presented a crisp, delicious cup.  Who knew that something so simple could be so delicious?  If you enjoy lemongrass or citrus flavors, this should be at the top of your ‘must-have’ list.
