Lemongrass - Despite trying, I could never get any flavor out of this. Tried it dried and fresh, different parts of the shoot, crushed and uncrushed. Not sure what I did wrong.


Interesting, my lemon grass always gives me a nice flavor, either fresh or dried, folded up to fit into the glass or cut up with scissors. Are you sure it was a lemon grass? Did it smell really nice lemony?
Unfortunately I had to get rid of it since I garden in the community garden plots and it got huge in just a year and half. It took me 8 hours to ax it out, no kidding. I kept some rooted stems and got one in the pot now, where it should behave. :)

I been a green tea matcha powder drinker and i would like to recommend it to you, You can enjoy the green tea powder as a frappe, cappuccino (matchaccino), latte and additional ingredients s to your baking recipes. try it with traditional or enjoy the flavored green tea powder from red leaf tea, there are a lot of flavors to choose from that suits your mood.

Thai Hairy Lemon Basil and German Chamomile 50/50. Really good hot tea for chilling on the porch.

I have really enjoyed this topic though I have some questions.

How do most of you brew your tea?  Do most of you use the hot method as bring your water to a boil, turn off heat and add your tea?  Do you brew a pot or just a cup?

Or do some of you use the cold brew method?  Or does anyone use the "sun tea" method?

I find that there is a big difference in flavor based on brew method.
