Lemongrass is by far the World’s most flavourful and beneficial grass and is a primary culinary herb in several types of Asian cuisine.
It is a popular misconception that Lemongrass must taste very similar to lemon. However, Lemongrass has a flavour profile all of its own. While it is citrusy with a lemony flavour, it tastes almost like a mix of lemon and lemon mint. The flavour is quite light and does not overpower other flavours in a dish. It also adds a slightly sharp and tangy taste without the bitterness of lemon.
