This Iced Lavender Blueberry Jasmine Tea is refreshing, fruity and fragrant. Blended fresh blueberries, lavender syrup, and green tea takes fruit and tea to a new level.
One of my favourite ways to cool down in the summer is with an Iced Lavender Blueberry Jasmine Tea.
I love the sweet floral fragrance from jasmine tea.
What is jasmine tea?
Sometimes black or white tea is used but primarily, jasmine tea is a green tea scented with jasmine flowers. It has a sweet, floral fragrance.
I find that it pairs well with fruit such as blueberries.
This tea is absolutely refreshing and it's a great way to enjoy fruit with your tea.
How to brew the tea
I like to use loose leaf tea with jasmine flowers, which also works great in jasmine tea poached pears. They can come as pearls, which are dried and rolled up.
Jasmine tea is a delicate tea that can be bitter if brewed at too hot of a temperature.
- Bring water to a boil
- Let it cool to 82 Celcius/180 Farenheit
- For 3 cups of water, I use about 2 heaped tablespoons of loose leaf tea
- Add the tea leaves into an infuser/teapot and pour a little water over top of the leaves
- Strain the water (this is to rinse the leaves)
- Pour water over top and let it steep for 3-4 minutes
Let the jasmine tea cool -- for the best flavour, chill in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
Ingredients you'll need
- cooled brewed jasmine tea
- fresh blueberries
- ice cubes
- lavender syrup or plain simple syrup is great too
How to assemble it
This drink is so easy to make -- simply add the cooled tea to a blender along with the blueberries and ice cubes.
Blend until smooth.
Add a little lavender syrup to the bottom of your glass and pour the blueberry jasmine tea over it.
Add a straw and enjoy.
