Octavia’s organic, naturally caffeine free, Lavender Lemongrass Herbal Tea is a soothing therapeutic blend with bits of lemongrass, lemon myrtle and beautiful lavender buds. For years lemongrass was used as an ancient healing remedy, known to detoxify the body, reduce inflammation, improve circulation relieve pain and relax muscles and nerves. In south American cultures Lemon Myrtle may fight infection and reduce congestion while Lavender is believed to reduce anxiety and balance mood.
Lemongrass is widely used as a culinary herb in Asian cuisine and also as a medicinal herb in India. With its subtle citrus flavor it is commonly used in teas, soups and curries. Culinary lavender, usually English lavender is the most commonly used species in cooking. Its aromatic sweet fragrance is delightful in desserts and tea blends.
For a stronger lavender flavor, put lavender buds into sugar for two weeks to allow the essential oils and fragrance to transfer; then the sugar itself can be used for baking or to sweeten your tea.
