Lemongrass, also called oil grass, is a tropical grass native to Southeast Asia that is also grown for culinary and ornamental purposes in warm, humid climates elsewhere.

The young shoots are commonly used in Asian cuisine to add lemony flavor to soups, such as classic Thai version that includes cilantro and chili pepper. In India, lemongrass is often used as an ingredient in a specialty herbal coffee called chukku kaapi. This beverage is also considered a traditional Kashayam, an Ayurvedic tonic that typically includes holy basil (Tulsi), black pepper and ginger.
