JADE LANTERN TEA RECIPE

 

Celebrate CHINESE NEW YEAR with this refreshing, sugar-free (but naturally sweet) cocktail or mocktail.

A versatile drink, it pairs beautifully with any Asian food.

  • 4 tbsp. JASMINE OASIS
  • 2 cups water
  • pinch of SWEET HERB
  • 1 cup ice
  • juice of 2 freshly squeezed lemons or limes
  • optional: 6 oz. white rum

Directions

Bring water to just before the boil. Pour over JASMINE OASIS tea leaves & a pinch of SWEET HERB. Steep for 3 minutes and strain.

Pour tea and SWEET HERB mixture over ice in a heatproof jug (a container resistant to extreme hot and cold temperatures, like a TAKEYA) to chill instantly. Combine chilled tea with fresh juice and white rum (to turn into a cocktail). Stir until mixed.

Serve in short glass tumblers over ice. Garnish with thinly sliced limes or lemons and star fruit. Enjoy!
