Jasmine Ginger Iced Green Tea Recipe

Iced Green TeaSome flavors are made for each other. Yeah, we all know about chocolate and peanut butter, but there are many more flavor pairings to explore. One of my favorite pairings is floral jasmine plus spicy ginger. Here, I’ve brought the two together in a refreshing mocktail. The mix of jasmine green tea plus sparkly ginger beer, lime and strawberries has been my favorite drink of the summer.
Iced Green Tea
Jasmine Ginger Iced Green Tea Recipe
1 wedge lime
4 ounces *brewed jasmine green tea, chilled
4 ounces ginger beer, chilled (I used Gosling’s)
Garnishes: Fresh sliced strawberries and additional lime wedges

Fill a glass with ice cubes. Squeeze the juice of a lime wedge over the ice and drop the lime wedge into the glass. Add the chilled green tea and ginger beer; stir gently. Garnish with strawberries and additional lime wedges.

Makes 1 drink

*Tip: For brewed tea, I used Rishi organic loose-leaf jasmine green tea. I steeped 1 tablespoon of tea in 2 cups of hot, but not boiling water (180 degrees F) for 3 minutes. The brewed tea should be cooled at room temperature, and then chilled in the refrigerator.

Grapefruit Oolong Tea Smoothie Recipe

Grapefruit Tea SmoothieI’ve been on an icy drink kick, a sure sign of summer. Whether it’s cold press coffee, fresh squeezed juice or fruit smoothies, I’m always sipping on something cool and refreshing.

My latest drink recipe is the iciest of iced teas. It’s a slushy mix of oolong tea, grapefruit and ice. I love adding a few drops of orange bitters to the mix to heighten the citrus flavor. If I’ve planned ahead, I’ll make ice cubes with oolong tea and use them in the drink. Oolong tea is mild, so the predominant flavor in this tea smoothie is grapefruit. I like to use red or pink grapefruit because they taste sweeter than white grapefruit.

Grapefruit Oolong Tea Smoothie Recipe
1 red or pink grapefruit
1/2 cup brewed oolong tea, chilled
Several drops orange bitters, optional
1 heaping cup ice cubes
Natural sweetener, if desired

Peel, section and juice grapefruit. (Cut grapefruit into supremes- remove all pith. Discard any seeds.) Add grapefruit sections and juice, tea, orange bitters and ice cubes to blender container. Cover and blend until smooth and slushy. Taste and add sweetener, if needed.

Makes about 2 1/2 cups (1 big or 2 small servings)

Tip: Since I like tart drinks, I don’t usually add any sweetener. If you prefer a sweeter drink, try adding a drizzle of pure maple syrup.Grapefruit Tea FrappeMore tea smoothie recipes:
