Grapefruit Jasmine Tea

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Chill Time: 20-30 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 35 to 45 minutes
Servings: 2

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 ounce or 12 tablespoons of grapefruit juice (2-3 small grapefruits)
  •  6 tablespoons of white sugar (see note #1)
  • 2 cups of boiling hot water and 6 tablespoons of water 
  • 2 tablespoons of loose leaf jasmine tea (see note #2)
  • Ice
Note:
  1. You can adjust based on your sweet preference
  2. I use the Sunflower brand jasmine tea.

Prep

  1. If you’re using the Sunflower brand jasmine tea, steep 2 tablespoons of loose leaf jasmine tea in 2 cups of boiling water for ~5 minutes. If not, brew your tea using instructions listed on the packaging. Set in the fridge or freezer to cool for 20 to 30 minutes
  2. In a saucepan, combine the sugar and 6 tablespoons of water over medium heat and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to low and let it bubble until the mixture has slightly thickened (~3-4 minutes). 
  3. Juice the grapefruit. Roll the grapefruit on your counter to help loosen the juice. Cut in half and squeeze with all your might!

Assemble the Drink

  1. Pour the jasmine tea into a pitcher that can hold at least 40 ounces of liquid.
  2. Add in 12 tablespoons of grapefruit juice and 4 tablespoons of the sugar syrup (adjust the sweetness by adding less or more). Mix well with a long spoon or straw.
  3. Add in ice and enjoy!
