Honey Serai (lemongrass) Ginger Tea Drink – Recipe

Some of my readers and friends tried out the serai (lemongrass) drink in my post Serai – Destroyer of Cancer Cells but found that it is not very tasty. Actually, it will taste better when chilled or when it is hot. Anyway, my neighbour thought me to make this Serai ginger tea drink and this is a tastier version of the remedy to destroy cancer cells. My kids love this drink very much. Here is the recipe of Honey Serai Tea Drink.

Ingredients
Serai, 3 pcs, crushed
Ginger, 1”x1”x1”, crushed
Tea (I used Lipton, any dark tea will do), 1 sachet
Sugar, to taste
Honey to taste

Pour 5 bowls of water into pot and bring to a boil. Add in the serai and ginger. Let it simmer at low heat for around 45 minutes. Add sugar and stir until it dissolves. Put in the tea bag. Turn off heat and let the temperature cool down a little bit. Add in honey and chill the drink in the fridge.

Sound like this kind of drink can also able to get rid of "angin" in our stomach.

Hah! I use a lot of srai in my cooking - another one coming up in my blog day after tomorrow.

I think somebody was complaining in his blog about how he went to this Payung Cafe here - a really nice place with really good food...and he ordered a drink and it came with a serai stuck in it. Some people are simply not adventurous - dunno what's good for them.
