• 5 green jasmine tea bags or 5 tbsp loose green jasmine tea
  • 200 ml just-boiled water
  • 3 tblsp caster sugar, or to taste
  • 500 ml cold water
  • handful or raspberries or blackberries (optional)


  • Steep the tea bags or loose tea in a measuring jug in the just-boiled water for 1 minute, adding the sugar and stirring until dissolved.
  • Remove the tea bags, or strain to remove the loose tea, then add the cold water.
  • Taste the tea for strength, adding a touch more cold water if it’s too strong, then put it in the refrigerator to chill further for 30 minutes. (If you can’t wait, add a few ice cubes to speed up the chilling process.)
  • Serve in vintage teacups. For a bit of extra colour, put a couple of berries into each cup before pouring, if liked.
