Jasmine Iced Tea with Elderflower

by on July 25th, 2012

This month I have been experimenting with my own iced tea recipes as a fantastic way to enjoy tea during the (occasionally) hot British summer. I thought I’d share my favourite with you, it’s a delicious, refreshing and summery jasmine and elderflower iced tea. It’s so easy to make and perfect as an accompaniment to an alfresco lunch or to sip while reading a book in the sunshine. I recommend making it in the morning so it will be nice and cool for the afternoon.


You will need:
10g Jasmine Pearls tea
1L water
2 tsp elderflower cordial
½ lemon chopped into 4 slices
1-2 tsp sugar (depending on taste)
Ice to finish

(These are my guidelines, but the quantities can be altered to your taste.)

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooling time: 4-5 hours
Serves: 4

• Brew 1 litre of jasmine pearls tea (10g of jasmine pearls at 75°c for 3 minutes) if your pot isn’t big enough just pour the infusions off until you have 1 litre of tea (i.e. keep re-infusing the tea leaves: jasmine pearls can be re-infused up to 3 times).
• Place your lemon, sugar and elderflower cordial into a large jug.
• Once tea is brewed pour over the other ingredients in the jug then stir.
• At this point taste the tea and add more sugar or elderflower if necessary to suit your taste.
• Now cover and leave to cool out of the fridge for about an hour.
• Put in the fridge for a further 3-4 hours until cold (do not add ice until it is completely cold otherwise it will melt and dilute your hard work!)
• Enjoy with ice in the sunshine.
