After a decade once again I am at my hometown with my green friends, now each of those is under my supervision & care. I am trying to renew my garden.

Found a great field of #lemongrass in recently opened #herbal-park in my area. It is widely used as a culinary herb in Asian cuisines and also as #medicinal #herb in #India. It has a subtle #citrus flavor and can be dried and powdered, or used fresh. It is commonly used in teas, soups and curries.

If you know how to make regular lemonade replace the regular water with lemongrass and lavender(if you have it) "tea" let "tea"cool before mixing with lemon juice add honey as a sweetener to your liking. I am not good at explaining things and never wrote this down. Sorry if confusing. @ankur1406

4 1/2 cups (1065ml) of the lemongrass and lavender tea blend(replacement for water) 1 cup (240ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice - from about 4-7 large lemons and to sweeten 1/3-1/2 cup (107-160 grams) honey to taste. But you can play around with it to suit your taste stronger or milder or use regular sugar(takes more sugar than honey) If you drink this as a hot drink it helps alot with coughs and other stuff as well.
