Have your say
- 1 stalk of lemongrass, cut into 3cm pieces
- 3cm of ginger, sliced finely
- 6 cups water
- 2 tbsp honey (optional)
Place the lemongrass and ginger in a pot with the water. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Strain and serve with honey if too pungent.
Another option is to add a clove of garlic to ward off colds and flu, and gargle.
