I was intrigued by my Facebook's friend, Michelle Heong's post on the green apple lemongrass tea. If consume over a period of time, it was believed to have beneficial effect on cartilage, thus reducing joint pain or inflammation. I am not so concern about its health benefit, but it truly makes a very refreshing drink. I prefer to serve this slightly tangy and sweet tea cold
