Lemon Grass Tea - CHIANG MAI TAKE-HOME Lemongrass Tea Bags

Lemon Grass Tea

Lemongrass in Thai is called Ta-krai. It is enjoyed as a drink all over Asia after meals for pure refreshment. This grass-like herb has a sharp, fresh and lemony aroma; it has long been a key ingredient in Thai cooking. As a medicinal herb, it was traditionally used to cure skin complaints and headaches, and was burnt to kill germs and repel insects. It is also an ingredient in Thai herbal compresses for its soothing, invigorating and antiseptic properties, while the aroma relieves stress and soothes hangovers.
Lemongrass tea can be a useful and delicious, yet non expensive, souvenir to take back home. One of the most famous producers in Chiang Mai is Raming Tea. The company offers a selection of carefully selected tea leaves and herbal tea, organically grown in the mountains of Chiang Mai. Their shop on Thapae Road is an elegant Victorianera house, with tea, cakes and Thai cuisine on the menu. It is lovingly taken care of by Khun Daeng Wangwiwat the owner.
