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. 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.
