“Tea … is one of those rare treasures, enjoyed throughout the world, that actually benefits health”! ~ Quote by KIT CHOW, All the Tea in China
Lemon grass tea called gavti chaha or गवती चाहा (in Marathi) is very popular for its refreshing flavour. Lemon grass tea also provides relief for people having common cold or cough. Regular use of this tea provides mild immunity against cold and cough.
Generally we add a few leaves of fresh lemon grass while boiling water for preparing our regular tea. The flavour of the regular tea gets distinctly enhanced.
So do enjoy this wonderful tea especially in the rainy season or in winter. The lemon grass tea is not taken in summer perhaps because it increases body heat slightly.
A lemon grass plant is very easy to grow you just need to water it regularly. Grow it soil or in a clay pot.
