|Scientific Name||Cymbopogon citratus|
|Description||Cymbopogon citratus, commonly known as lemon grass or oil grass, is a tropical plant from Southeast Asia. Cymbopogon citratus is abundant in the Philippines and Indonesia where it is known as tanglad or sereh. Its fragrant leaves are traditionally used in cooking, particularly for "lechon" and roasted chicken. The dried leaves can also be brewed into a tea, either alone or as a flavoring in other teas, imparting a flavor reminiscent of lemon juice but with a mild sweetness without significant sourness or tartness.
