What is Lemongrass?
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) is a tall, perennial grass in a class of around 45 species of grasses native to the tropical and sub-tropical climates of Asia, Australia, and Africa. India is the most productive of lemongrass (producing over 2 million pounds per year), where it is cultivated along the mountain range of the Western Ghats and beside the lower regions of Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim in the Himalayan mountains.
Lemongrass grows spectacularly well in Ayuronics USDA-certified natural herbal tea garden in Northern, which borders India and is nestled against the Himalayan mountains.
With this native lemongrass, we produce Ayuronics Lemongrass Herbal Infusion, an invigorating, thirst-quenching herbal blend of lemongrass and bay leaf.
