Tangerine Lemongrass Iced Tea

Happy New year Family! How is 2019 coming along? January was a crazy month and I wrote about it on Instagram.
It seems it is citrus season all over the world. At least Instagram says so. My feed for the past two days has been filled with beautiful images of different citrus fruits and it makes me happy. I have been enjoying buying fresh tangerines from the local fruit seller and man are they juicy!
I figure since almost everyone has citrus in abundance, its time to get out the blender and make this tangerine lemongrass iced tea. It is so refreshing, fragrant and easy to make. I have made lemongrass iced tea in the past but when I got a chance to try it with fresh juicy tangerines, I could not resist.
What you will need:
4 large tangerines
4 C Water
A handful of lemongrass
Sugar/honey
Ice
Here is a short video detailing the process.
Method
  1. Bring the 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the lemongrass and let it boil till a sweet aroma is released and it has changed color. This may take about 20 minutes. Remove the tea from fire and let it cool completely.
  2. While the lemongrass tea cools,  cut the tangerines into half and squeeze out the juice. Sieve the juice and set a side.
  3. Once the lemongrass tea has cooled down, combine it with the tangerine juice, sugar and ice in a blender and blend till frothy. Fill your glasses with ice and pour the iced tea into the glasses.
  4. Serve cold.
