Taking a break from your busy day with a soothing cup of tea can be an excellent way to relax and recharge. However, have you ever considered a caffeine-free alternative like Lemongrass? With an earthy aroma and light citrus flavor, this versatile herb can be served hot or cold. Although it is commonly known for its culinary uses, the medical and scientific communities agree that the health benefits are worth researching. This is probably because of the numerous historical services that the herb is known for. For example, in the Caribbean, Lemongrass is known as 'fever grass' and is used as a hot tea in traditional medicine to reduce fevers. Nevertheless, we can all agree that having a cup of Lemongrass Tea is a great way to unwind.
