Iced Lemongrass Tea with Ginger & Mint

by | Updated: December 4th, 2016

Ginger and mint might not roll off the tongue as easily as salt and pepper, but their flavors are just as sharp and complementary, smoothing out each other’s rough edges. That’s why we love them blended into this iced tea, featuring Vitacost Organic Zenshine Herbal Chamomile-Lemongrass Tea. Without overpowering the tea, mint and ginger enhance its soothing, calming flavors, bringing about a refreshing brew that you’ll love to sip whether you’re enjoying the great outdoors or sitting at your kitchen table. Get steeping!
