I meant to add the recipe for that tea in the picture.  That picture was taken at Alila Manggis in Bali on a recent trip.  Here's how you make it. 
Lemon Grass Ginger Tea 
Trim two stalks of lemon grass or use dried lemon grass, chop the fresh into small pieces
one short stick of cinnamon
one small bunch of a sprig
one thumb size or a bit bigger piece of ginger, peeled and mashed a bit
Add boiling water and let steep together about five minutes, strain into a cup
I used a coffee press but now have lovely tea pots with built in strainers.
Add the juice of a small piece of lime and about one teaspoon of your favorite honey to the strained liquid........sip and enjoy!
