Dried lemon grass leaves to make a zesty, refreshing drink that is highly satisfying both hot and cold. It has a light lemony taste, with slight hint of ginger. And is known to lift a sagging spirit, as well as aid digestion. Recent studies also show that Lemon Grass has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Is available in not only in bangkok but throughout southeast asia. Here it is known as Cha Krai and it cost 12 baht a hot cup and 16 Baht for cold drink in plastic cups at street vendors.
