  • a generous pinch of jasmine tea steeped in 1/4 c. of hot water for about 4 minutes
  • juice of one lime
  • honey to taste
  • lime slices


  • Pour the tea into a tall glass making sure that the leaves get left behind. If you want to be extra careful not to have tea leaves in your iced drink, use a strainer. I was too lazy to get one.
  • Pour in enough cold water to half fill the class.
  • Cut a lime in half and squeeze the juice into the class. Take another lime and cut into slices. Drop the slices into the glass.
  • Add a tablespoonful of honey to start with, taste, and adjust the amount of lime juice and honey, as needed. You can opt to press the lime slices with the back of a long spoon to release the juice. You want the drink to taste strong at this point because you’re going to add ice and the ice will dilute the drink as it melts.
  • When the drink tastes right to you, drop in some ice cubes. Stir. Drink up and enjoy.
