What is Lemongrass Tea
Lemongrass Tea is a wonderful, soothing citrus beverage that offers many health benefits. This tasty and nutritious tea contains a wealth of vitamins, including vitamins A, C and the B spectrum, and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorous, copper, zinc, potassium and manganese. Perhaps more importantly, Lemongrass Tea has fantastic antioxidants like flavonoids, volatile oils and phenolic compounds.
Lemongrass hails from Asia and is part of the Poaceae species of slender, tall grasses. The leaves of the stalks are ground to make Lemongrass Tea. Lemongrass is a citral, which gives it a zesty lemon flavor and aroma and is also an antimicrobial, antioxidant and immune-boosting ingredient. In fact, Lemongrass Tea has antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic, astringent, sedative and diuretic properties, among other cleansing and disease-fighting benefits. These qualities make Lemongrass Tea a delicious and nutritious beverage all year long.
Due to its potency of antioxidants like flavonoids and citral, volatile oils and phenolic compounds, Lemongrass Tea provides incredible immuno-protective nourishment. Lemongrass Tea not only combats free radicals that attack cells and lead to disease, it also supports a stronger immune system to fight off common ailments like colds, the flu, congestion and digestive distress. It cleanses the system and helps reduce swelling throughout the body, which often causes chronic degeneration, speeds the biological aging process and induces pain. As such, Lemongrass Tea can help reduce pain from muscles, joints, headaches and respiratory distress.
Lemongrass Tea also has positive effects on the heart and brain and emotional wellbeing. Like many antioxidants and agents that reduce swelling, Lemongrass Tea works to reduce cholesterol and plaque buildup in arteries that can head to cardiovascular issues. It also sustains energy powering the heart and brain, and supports the nervous system that keeps neurotransmission on track. Lemongrass Tea is known as a natural sedative that can calm many areas of the body, helping lower stress, anxiety and depression, blood pressure and other areas linked to emotional wellbeing.
How to Drink Lemongrass Tea
Not surprisingly, Lemongrass Tea has a tangy lemon flavor with a zesty aroma to match. The fragrance alone can be a stimulating experience as Lemongrass is often used as an herbal additive to essential oils for aromatherapy, soaps and lotions. Zokiva offers 100% pure Lemongrass Tea that provides all of the incredible plant benefits of natural Lemongrass.
Lemongrass Tea is most often served hot as a delicious way to add flavor and nutrition to the diet by steeping a tea bag in hot water for 10 minutes. It can be combined with milk, honey, sugar or lemon slices for traditional tea preparations.
Lemongrass Tea can also be made into a cold lemonade. To create a pitcher of this refreshingly nourishing drink, combine three lemongrass tea bags with 48 oz. of water, 2 tablespoons honey, a teaspoon cinnamon and a freshly squeezed lemon in a saucepan. Stir over high heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Let cool and then pour into a pitcher over ice. Continue to sweeten your cool Lemongrass Lemonade to taste.
