Lemongrass is a staple in Asian cuisine to add lemony flavor to curries, soups and stews. In southern India, lemongrass is made into a traditional tea known as chukku kaapi, the name for which translates to “dried ginger coffee.”
Lemongrass is also combined with other herbs in tea blends and can also be tinctured or used to make syrup.
