Lemongrass Ginger Iced Tea

(recipe via Sunset Magazine)

Rinse stalk of fresh lemon grass, cut into 2 inch lengths and crush with the flat side of a large knife. In a large pan, add the water, lemon grass, ginger & sugar. Bring to a boil. Take off the heat and add green tea into the water; let steep for 4 minutes or until flavor is as strong as you like. Discard the tea bags; let tea cool, about 30 minutes. Cover & chill until cold, at least 2 hours. Pour into glasses and fill with ice.
