You can enjoy the amazing health benefits of lemon grass or lemon verbena in this yummy chai!

This chai tastes delicious with either lemongrass or lemon verbena or a little of both. Lemon grass is great for aiding in digestion, the regulation of blood pressure and the relief of menstrual pain.  Lemon verbena is wonderful for calming the stomach and clearing up congestion in the chest. Both are said to help anxiety, clear the skin and aid in weightloss. 

Combine two parts milk of your choice with one part water in a pot and bring to a boil. I love to use coconut milk with this tea which enhances the flavor and health benefits.  Coconut milk is good for the heart and provides a great deal of electrolytes to the body. Add 1-2 tablespoons of black tea per desired tea strength. I like a strong tea so I add two table spoons however this may be a bit strong for you if you're not used to drinking black tea. You can always add more later.

Allow the tea to boil until it develops a rich brown color which may have a reddish hue to it depending on how much tea and what type of milk you use. This should take about 20 minutes. Strain and serve in pretty cups with biscuits. Enjoy!
