Popular Post Teasenz Posted August 4, 2016 at 03:22 AM Popular Post Report Share Posted August 4, 2016 at 03:22 AM I've been requested to post a tea recipe in this thread. So here it is: We're still in the middle of the summer so I thought you guys can use some refreshment ;) The Story So before I start, let me tell my story on how I came up with this. Basically, I was brewing some Kunlun snow Chrysanthemum one day, but I suddenly had to leave for a meeting. It was a waste, because they're not cheap. My colleague told me she could preserve them in ice cubes. That's a pretty crazy idea right? Later we found out that they turned out pretty good looking. The Steps They're really easy to make, here are the steps: Get a ice cube tray. Buy herbs you love and that are suitable for an infusion. I think these are great to try: Any type of Chrysanthemum Other flower teas Hibiscus Goji Jujube You can find them in most Chinese supermarkets in China, and some of them abroad. Or you can order them from Teasenz. Fill the ice cube tray with water, and put some herbs in each compartment. Put it in the fridge and let it freeze overnight. Some notes: I've tried this with leaf tea as well, but that doesn't work. A cube just doesn't fit enough leaves, so the taste is too weak (even for a very light tea drinker like me). You can steep the herbs with a bit of hot water first and then let them cool down before you put them in the fridge. This will release more flavor in the water when you use them! It kind of depends whether you want to use the cubes for complementing another beverage, or use them to make the main beverage. Feel free to use different herbs, then use multiple ones to create a blend! 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
