Ingredients

  • 4 bags jasmine tea
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 stalk lemongrass cut into 2-inch (5 cm) lengths

Method

In large heatproof measure or bowl, steep tea in 8 cups (2 L) boiling water for 4 minutes. Discard bags.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, bring sugar, 1 cup (250 mL) water and lemongrass to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer to combine flavours, about 5 minutes. Add to tea; let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.

Strain into pitcher, pressing solids only gently so beverage remains clear. Serve with ice cubes.
