Perfect for a spot of afternoon tea between friends or family.


  • 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)



  1. 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.
  2. Remove the tea bags, or strain to remove the loose tea, then add the cold water.
  3. 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.)
  4. Serve in vintage teacups. For a bit of extra colour, put a couple of berries into each cup before pouring, if liked.
