Ingredients: 100g High Fragrance Jasmine Tea No.3 - 1800mL Boiling water - 300% Ice (for rapidly cooling down the tea) - 1400g Additional cold water - Fresh jasmine blossoms (optional, for garnish).
1. Assemble Your Ingredients: Before embarking on this delightful journey, ensure you have all the ingredients at the ready. High Fragrance Jasmine Tea No.3 takes the spotlight here, so make certain you have 100g of it prepared.
2. Boil the Water: In a kettle, bring 1800mL of water to a rolling boil. Once the water reaches boiling point, turn off the heat and allow it to sit briefly, cooling down slightly.
3. Swift Cooling: To rapidly lower the temperature of the boiled water, add ice to the kettle. Aim for roughly 300% of the water's volume in ice. This swift cooling step is crucial to prevent the tea from turning bitter and to extract the finest aroma from the jasmine leaves.
4. Infusion: Gently place the 100g of High Fragrance Jasmine Tea No.3 into the kettle containing the cooled water and ice. Allow the tea leaves to steep for about 8 minutes. During this period, the delicate jasmine aroma and the tea's flavour will meld beautifully.
5. Filtration: After the steeping time, carefully filter the tea to separate the tea leaves. For this step, you can use a fine mesh strainer or a tea infuser. The filtered tea should be clear and redolent, emanating the very essence of jasmine.
6. Final Flourish: Now, it's time to elevate the tea's taste and aroma to greater heights. Add 1400g of cold water to the filtered tea. Gently stir the mixture to ensure the flavours are evenly distributed, resulting in a harmonious fusion of jasmine and tea.
7. Chill and Present: Transfer the prepared High Fragrance Jasmine Tea No.3 to a pristine and hermetic container. Place the container in the refrigerator and allow the tea to chill throughout the day. The cold temperature will aid in melding and intensifying the flavours.
8. Presentation (Optional): For an elegant presentation, you might consider adorning each serving with fresh jasmine blossoms. This not only imparts a touch of refinement but also reinforces the enchanting jasmine experience.
9. Savour: When the tea has properly chilled, pour yourself a glass and relish in the delightful aroma and flavour of High Fragrance Jasmine Tea No.3. Its floral notes and invigorating essence are certain to rejuvenate your senses, making this cold brew an absolutely delightful indulgence. Whether savoured on a balmy afternoon or paired with your preferred meal, the cold brew High Fragrance Jasmine Tea No.3 provides an unforgettable experience that encapsulates the very essence of jasmine in each and every sip.
