I drink a lot of iced tea, and this recipe will be added into my rotation. I cut the sugar in half to suit my taste, and only combined the tea and syrup in a pitcher in the fridge. Since I wasn't serving this all at once, I kept the sparkling water separate until ready to serve. That way I get the fizziness each time I pour a glass. I love Jasmine tea, and this is a wonderful way to enjoy it!

Lovely and Refreshing! I made this with jasmine tea bags, Splenda and club soda. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

Excellent. Like an adult soft drink. Very refreshing. At first I was afraid that the 6-min steeping would produce too muc bitterness in the tea. However, by the time the syrup was added in and the sparkling water too, it was just perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to serve this to anyone.
