    The Quali-tea of Lemongrass

    Hi there! Welcome to yet another Quali-tea episode! Today, we present you Lemongrass. This is one of our favorite ingredients in the Waku blend. Lemongrass is an herb with a lemony scent. The culinary herb is produced from the stalk of the lemongrass plant (Cymbopogon citratus), which grows in many tropical climates, most notably in Southeast Asia. This plant imparts a flavor of lemon with hints of ginger and has the same essential oil as lemons. It is often used in herbal teas to give a lemon flavor. Fresh lemongrass can have floral and minty notes as well.
