iced jasmine & elderflower tea

This has got to be one of the most refreshing drinks I've tasted in a long time, well in the non alcoholic department at least.  It would be hard to compete with my white peach sangria which I have been meaning to blog about for ages and will get round to it someday I promise.
Here, the dash of elderflower cordial adds that little kick of deliciousness to the already very aromatic jasmine tea.  These two flavours are made for each other and I would encourage you make a batch and keep it in the fridge, serve it with lunch or even an afternoon snack in the garden.
I used flowering jasmine pearls, but you could use any jasmine flavour tea be it a bag or leaves.



You will need:
  • 1 flowering jasmine tea pearl (or 1 jasmine flavoured tea bag)
  • a dash of elderflower cordial
  • a few blocks of ice

1) Make the tea as you would normally, allow to cool slightly.  Pour a dash of elderflower cordial in each glass or in the tea pot (to taste) depends how sweet you like it.  Pour the tea over ice into the individual glasses.

raspberry, coconut and honey lassi



There is not much to say about this drink other than it is every so simple, ever so refreshing and ever so good for you.  One small sip and you'll find yourself drifting off to another land, a land of suntan oil, mosquitos and peace, yes somewhere exotic, somewhere we call a holiday!
Serves 2-4
You'll need:
  • 1 punnet of raspberries
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 1/2 can of coconut milk
  • crushed ice

1) Put raspberries, honey and coconut milk in a blender and blend till smooth.  Serve over crushed ice.
