The Tao of Tea Lemongrass, Certified Organic Herbal Tea, 1-Pounds …
I rarely review anything but this may save someone from making a mistake.
I tried lemongrass tea from another source (adigo tea) and really liked it so I looked for a cheaper bulk source on amazon. I figured all lemongrass tea must at least be similar. Boy was I wrong. This tea has the consistency of finely ground sawdust. There are no real leaves from the lemongrass plant. What’s worse, is that the taste is very weak and somewhat weird. I tried several different steeping temps and times with no luck. This whole bag is now going in the garbage as I’ve ordered new stuff from my original source.

A lot of tea, excellent bulk, strong and fresh, good for making summer iced tea pitchers or any quantity drinking. Hot with stevia and lemongrass oil drops is wonderful. I have tried other brands but the bagged lemongrass teas have too little tea in the bag per what I wanted. This is a lot of tea! There is some fine powder but it dissolves quickly, and it’s mostly lemongrass leaves/stems. At first sight it seemed a little dry=, but the quality is good. One scoop makes a strong cup. And it’s one of the only organic lemongrass teas. Also the package is now sealable, keeps it fresh. air-tight seal-able. Lemongrass is also available in essential oils, a drop or two enhances tea (or Thai coconut soup). Repeat order!
Yeah, I agree it is kind of powdery but there is still more lemon “grass” than powder. I have a feeling that you’re just going to get powder as the strands of grass break and get moved around in the bag. I just think.. well, I’m still getting the benefit. I like the flavor. Reminds me of fruit loops in a way 🙂 I will have it alone or add green tea sometime 🙂
This is my 3rd time ordering this tea. My ND suggested it to boost my immune system.
