Iced Tea Month continues here on About Coffee / Tea with jasmine iced tea recipes. Jasmine tea is a tea (usually a green tea) that has been scented with jasmine blossoms or jasmine essence (or, in lesser teas, artificial jasmine flavor). Jasmine teas have a naturally sweet flavor that makes a great base for many iced tea recipes. Ideally, they are brewed at below boiling, as boiling water can give them a more astringent flavor (which most people cover up with extra sweetener).
Here are a few of my favorite jasmine iced tea recipes:
- Jasmine Tea & Brandied Fruit Sangria Recipe from Cynthia Gold
- Jasmine Iced Tea Lemonade Recipe from Samovar Tea Lounge (pictured above)
- Sparkling Jasmine Iced Tea Recipe
