This is another result of my tea experimentation's. With this one I really think that less is more and stopping while I was ahead. It's very light tasting with a bit of flower and an essence of cinnamon. If you have not used rose water before start with a 1/2 teaspoon and add more if you like.
- 5 cups water, filtered
- 4 green jasmine tea bags
- 2 (3 inch) cinnamon sticks (use 1 if you like a light touch of cinnamon)
- 1 teaspoon rose water
- sugar (or honey or Splenda) (optional)
- Heat pure filtered water (for clear tea) with the tea bags and cinnamon just to boiling.
- Put a lid on the pan and remove from the heat and allow to steep for 20 minutes.
- Discard the tea bags.
- You may leave the cinnamon in the tea if you like, it will add more flavor if it remains in the tea.
- Add the Rose Water and stir.
- Cool to room temp or chill.
- Sweeten to your taste.
- Serve over ice (you can certainly drink it hot if you wish).
Lovely refreshing iced tea! I love rose water, and it made a perfect match with the jasmine tea and a little cinnamon. Used some drops of acacia honey in it - so good after working in the garden! Thanks for sharing :)<br/>Made for May Garden Party in the Diabetic Forum 2013
Very refreshing after a day working in the garden. The rose and jasmine are a perfect compliment to each other and the cinnamon is very subtle. I used a little Splenda, but I am going to try some wildflower honey next time. Also going to try it hot next winter!
