I’m a little sad to see this sipdown happen; but it’s time – I have enough jasmine white teas in my life at the moment and there’s no point holding on to one last, sad cup of tea.
I made the most out of this last cup though, and I whipped together a stellar tea cocktail for myself! I was inspired by the fact that, despite many people thinking I’m wrong in this comparison, jasmine scented teas almost always remind me of grapes. So, to play off that I muddled a large handful of grapes with a little bit of sugar, some vodka, and some peach schnapps. I added that mix into a cup, then filled the cup with ice. From there I just simply poured over a very strong, slightly over steeped mug of Silver Cat and made myself a light, refreshing and crisp mix of fresh, fruity notes and delicate florals! It felt like a very, very elegant kind of cocktail and I loved how much the jasmine and freshly muddled grapes really made one another pop!
It was amazing! Something for me to keep in mind to recreate with some of the other jasmine teas I have on hand…
