How to make Lemongrass & Pandan Tea (with ginger)
A Thai natural medication to lower uric acid and stop gout. Also used as a health drink for a number of other health conditions and to help increase the level of wellness.
Both Lemongrass and Pandan provide a great number of healing benefits and when combined they create a tea that is full of antioxidants. It has been shown to reduce cholesterol, ease constipation and ease stress. The tea, like most herbal or natural teas, introduces a feeling of relaxation and can be enjoyed hot or cold.
It is so easy to make, tastes good and is very effective. You will need the following:-
2 litres of water
5 stems of fresh lemongrass cut and crushed
5 leaves of fresh Pandan, cut and crushed
A slice of ginger (optional)
Bring the water to the boil, add ingredients and boil for 6 minutes. Keep the pot closed to ensure that the essential oils remain. Simmer for 6 minutes, allow to cool. Remove the lemongrass, pandan and ginger and either drink immediately as a hot tea or put in a container that will fit in your fridge. Use within 2 days.
To start, drink every day for 1 month. Take a break for 1 week and if the symptoms continue repeat every 2 weeks.
