Not a big fan of coffee and love tea? You may fall in love with this as much as I did. Its so simple and not much effort at all. Make it yourself at home any time of the day!
1) Pick your tea. I prefer Jasmine or black tea.
2) As you can see Jasmine was my pick! I used loose herbs of Jasmine tea. Don’t have time to use tea infuser? Use a tea bag. It’s just as good! A tea I grew up drinking with my parents and the older folks. I would say most Asians can vouch they grew up around this jasmine tea brand and/or even drank it and still does!
3) Leave the tea in the water for as long as you like. The longer the stronger the tea extract. I left the tea leaves in the boiling water for about 3-4 minutes. As you can see, I used a strainer to separate my tea leaves..ghetto fab huge strainer..I know! Use what you have in the kitchen and make it work is what momma always said. Be creative.
4) Milk can be used with sugar. I did a little experiment and fell in love! I used french vanilla creamer. I filled the cup with 3/4 of boiled water with the tea extract and about 1/4 of the creamer. It really depends how sweet you want it. All by preference!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do every time I whip this concoction up for a relaxing time. All photos taken by me with the Canon 5D Mark ii Hope your Tuesday was a great day.
