Lemongrass

During my very first visit with my mother-in-law I got so sick I thought I was going to die.  And my husband was out somewhere with my brother-in-law so it was just me and her. Can anybody say AWKWARD??? But being the amazing lady she is, she made me an herbal tea that to this day is probably the most heavenly thing I can think of to drink, whether hot or cold. And I didn’t die, so who knows whether it was just a passing thing or if it was magic tea???

This gorgeous new skirt from coldLogic reminded me of that tea today…if you feel like making it here is what to use:

2 parts dried lemon verbena leaves (you can use fresh as well)
1 part dried lemongrass
1 part dried melissa leaves (I believe this is called lemon balm in English)

Pour boiling water over the dried leaves and let it sit for 5-7 minutes. Strain out the leaves. Add sugar or whatever sweetener you like and enjoy your own little moment of heaven.

    Thank you sooo much for this! I had heard of a lemongrass tea, but hadn’t seen a recipe.
