Step 1: First, slice 1 large piece of ginger, cut 3 stalks of lemongrass into smaller pieces and boil them in a pot of water for around 15 minutes.

Step 2: Now allow the essence to be released from the ginger and lemongrass, imparting a distinct and refreshing flavour to the pot of boiling water.

Step 3: Next add palm sugar according to your taste. Once all the sugar has dissolved, give it a light stir and drain into cups.

This ginger lemongrass tea can be had either hot or cold. It can also be stored in bottles for up to four days in the refrigerator. Serve it chilled on a summer afternoon, or piping hot on a cold winter night.
