Where does our Lemongrass come from? We work with some small farmers in Uttarakhand who grow their Lemongrass without using any synthetic chemicals.
Are these tea bags? We do not believe in tea bags because of the synthetic polymers in their material. These are just dried Lemongrass leaves which can be added directly to your teas.
Historical importance: Because of its citrusy flavor and high antioxidant content, lemongrass has been ayurvedically prescribed for a good gut, relaxed sleep and for de-stressing the mind.
What does it taste like? Lemongrass has a fresh citrusy aroma and a lime-like flavor with some sweet tones. It is a very popular ingredient in Thai cooking.
Benefits: Ayurvedically known for its aromatherapy properties, lemongrass calms the mind and body. It is also known for flushing out excess water from the body by its diuretic properties.
