Lemon grass is a member of the Poaceae family, which includes all the common grasses. Originally from Malaysia, it flourishes in any humid climate. Lemon grass may be harvested several times in a season by cutting the upper portion of the leafy material, which quickly grows back for a second cutting. It is hugely popular among lovers of Asian cuisine, especially Thai. Most of the lemon grass used as an herbal tea comes from Argentina, Hawaii and Chile.
