What is Lemon Grass
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) is a tall, perennial grass in a class of about 45 species of grasses native to the tropical and sub-tropical climates of Asia, Australia and Africa. India is the highest producer of lemongrass (producing over 2 million pounds per year), where it is cultivated along the mountain range of the Western Ghats and beside the foothills of Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim in the Himalayan mountains.
Lemongrass is an herb that is native to Sri Lanka and South India but now grows in many countries around the world.
Lemongrass grows spectacularly well in Teatulia®’s USDA-certified organic tea garden in Northern Bangladesh, which borders India and is nestled against the Himalayan mountains.
