I’ve been wanting to share this Lemon Grass Tea recipe for a while now. It’s my all-time favorite hydration drink; it’s so easy and it’s so healthy!🫖🍵
My family has been on a quest to live more sustainably and grow more of our own food. We’ve recently been experimenting with growing lemon grass. Let me assure you, even if you have a black thumb, you can TOTALLY grow lemon grass. 🌱 It’s the easiest thing ever to grow and doesn’t need much nurturing!
You can drink this tea iced or hot so it’s a great recipe all year round! The taste is flavorful, but not overpowering. It’s super soothing to your stomach and body and is a great way to get a hydration boost!

- 1 bunch of lemon grass
- 1 medium-sized pot of water
- Pinch or two of salt
- Sweetener to taste (I like raw honey or sugar)
- 1 lemon or lime (for juicing)
- Ice cubes (if drinking it cold)
Grow some lemon grass and harvest a handful or so of it, trying to keep the leaves as long as possible.
Cut these long leaves into inch-sized pieces and smash them a little bit. Add the pieces to the pot of water. Bring the pot of water to a boil and then remove it from heat and let it sit for a little while. Add the salt.
Pour the contents of the pot through a strainer into a large bowl or jug. This will remove all of the leaves from the tea. Sweeten to taste and add lemon or lime juice if you prefer that as well.
Pour yourself a glass of tea and enjoy it hot or iced!!
