Ingredients (serves 2 people)
- 3 big lemongrass bulbs – you want the white base part where concentration of nutrients is highest
- ginger (peeled;crushed)
- 600 ml drinking water
- honey (or sugar) to taste
In a non-aluminium pot, boil 600 ml (~20oz) of water.
Slice finely, or cut/pound the above ingredients to release the phytonutrients, fragrance and oils.
Throw the cut ingredients into the boiling water, turn fire down to simmer for 5-7 minutes
When done, turn off the fire and cover the pot with lid. Let the tea steep for about 20-30 minutes.
Strain. Add 1 tablespoon raw honey or stevia or sugar for taste if desired. Drink warm.
Tip for busy people: You can prepare this tea in the night and leave it in the pot to cool. In the morning, just lightly reboil it and pour into a thermal flask to take with you to work. You can sip it throughout the day but do not keep for more than 24 hours. Note that when drinking this tea, the diuretic effect will make you want to urinate more. The tea is doing its work of carrying out toxins to be eliminated. Do drink lots of water also to continue with the elimination. Enjoy!
