How to Make Green Tea & Basil Lemonade

We've chosen to cold brew the tea for this one so you'll have to plan ahead, but rest assured it is well worth the wait - the slower infusion draws out more of the tea's floral notes & natural sweetness. Add a touch of elderflower and some peppery basil and you’ve got yourself a wonderfully refreshing twist on a sunny day lemonade.

What you need (per drink)

  • 150ml cold-brewed Jade Tips tea (see brewing guide below)

  • 25ml Elderflower Cordial (up to 30ml, to taste)

  • 15ml lemon juice 

  • Basil leaves to garnish

  • Ice

Brewing Guide

We recommend cold-brewing your tea for this one.

  • Infuse 3 heaped teaspoons of Jade Tips tea leaves or 3 tea bags in 500ml cold, filtered water (we highly recommend using one of these beautiful bottles, but any clean, lidded bottle will work)

  • Leave to infuse overnight in the fridge (10-15 hours)

  • Strain the leaves or tea bags

Method

- Prepare your glass with ice & basil leaves

- Add your cold brewed tea, lemon juice and elderflower to a shaker filled with ice.

- Shake for 10 seconds, then strain into the prepared glass.

Enjoy!
