The grass that flavours

This is lemon grass, which is used extensively in Thai and Cambodian cooking. A small piece of lemon grass added to your tea refreshes you greatly. It is also a mosquito repellent, and so it is planted near bedroom windows. But beware! The blades of lemon grass are razor sharp. I have cut my hands many times trying to pull out a blade.
