    I love the ginger lemgrass tea. The tea I made turned brown, never green like your pic.

      Hi Lynn, thank you for trying out the tea! I wonder why yours turned brown though, since mine always ends up with greenish color. Perhaps there is a difference between Indonesian lemongrass and yours, but I am glad you still love the tea ;)
