Another tea I was a bit apprehensive about, I love lemongrass in food and I can kinda tolerate it in tea blends when I feel it belongs (no idea, but for a while it seemed that lemongrass was in everything, drove me crazy) but just straight lemongrass as a tea, never had it! Giving the bag a sniff I was pleased, I love the way it smells, I used to wear lemongrass oil as my signature 'smell' in high school. It blends crisp lemons with a touch of savory, it makes my mouth water the same way that savory citrus dishes (and salted lemons) do, it is the slightly green undertones that really make lemongrass work for me. Brewing the tea does not really change the aroma, it is still richly lemony and green.


Ok, here is the big moment, and...ok, I was not expecting that! It is sweet, lemongrass is actually sweet! I was expecting it to be herbaceous and savory, but nope, it is like mildly sweet warm lemonade, I almost always find lemonade too sweet, so this is pretty delicious. Expectations man, subverting them can be awesome or it can be gross, this time it was awesome! I like you lemongrass, I am sorry I shunned you in tea before, from now on, you and me are bros.

Lemongrass is lemongrass, and the difference- between various lemongrasses (for tea) that I've tried have been very subtle. That said, this is without a doubt the best lemongrass I've ever tried.

This isn't the most lemony version of this herb that I've had, but it has a smoothness that is hard to find. Lemongrass can tend to be on the harsh side, but this one has a roundness to the flavor that I find very welcoming. The aroma is lemony, with straw and a hint of honey. Much less astringency than Upton's lemongrass, which comes from Thailand. But still some astringency in the aftertaste.

The only downside is that this is very expensive as lemongrass goes. Is it worth paying more? It's up to you. I think the quality of this particular herbal tea is absolutely top-notch. And Teatulia offers an organic option, produced by a farmer-owned cooperative. In this case, I think that's worth it.
