  • 2 cups water
  • 1.5 tsp tea leaves I use Taj Mahal tea
  • 1 lemongrass stalks and leaves chopped
  • 2 tsp. sugar/honey
  • ¼ cup milk


  • Bring the water and lemongrass stalks and leaves to a boil. Let lemongrass steep for about 5 minutes.
  • Now add the tea leaves and lower the flame. Let the tea leaves brew for about 3 minutes.
  • Add milk and sugar. Heat for a minute more.
  • Strain and serve.
  • Your Lemongrass chai is ready.



  • You must add both leaves and stalk of lemongrass. I end up using one lemongrass each time.
  • You can skip milk but I do love this Indian way of making lemongrass tea.
  • You can add a dash of cinnamon powder if you like.
