Pooja Mattl, author of The 3 Day Reset, has high praise for this green tea variation: “For those unfamiliar with the flavor of green tea or those who find it too bitter, this kind of green tea offers a more palatable alternative as the beautiful, strong aroma and flavor of jasmine offsets the bitterness and at the same time, captivates the senses.”
(Mattl prefers Jasmine Pearl loose leaf tea by Rishi tea)
- 1 Tablespoon loose leaf jasmine green tea
- 8 Ounces filtered cold water
Place tea leaves in an infuser of choice (mesh ball, bag, etc.) and place in serving teacup or glass. Bring water to a boil, wait a minute, then pour it over the tea leaves. Let is steep for exactly 3 minutes — no longer or your tea will become too bitter. Remove the tea infuser or strain the tea. Save leaves; they’re good for one more infusion. Serve over ice.
