Jasmine Dragon Pearls Green Tea & Lychee Cold Brew

One of our most aromatic and elegant teas is the Lux Jasmine Dragon Pearls. We’ve tried many hand-rolled Pearls and this was a well-balanced one that’s floral, gentle and sweet, without being overpowering. These Lux Pearls have been naturally scented six times by Mr. Lin, the tea farmer, from Fuding, Fujian Province; while the jasmine flowers come from Guangxi, where it has earned nationwide recognition.

This Cold Brew version is very crisp, floral & elegant—and extremely easy to make with just 2 ingredients, plus a sweetener of your choice. Highly recommend having a glass in the afternoon if you’re looking to relax and refresh, and want something indulging. Or have it with sunset on a wine glass, as it deserves. Low caffeine. ☺

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp of Jasmine Dragon Pearls (Spring Harvest)
  • 4 cups of water (or 1-liter Pitcher/Carafe/Juice Jug)
  • 1 cup diced Lychees
  • 1 tbsp of honey (optional)

Serves: 1 Liter

Instructions:

  1. Rinse the Jasmine Dragon Pearls with hot water for 5 seconds. Discard the water.
  2. Then, mix all the ingredients together in a pitcher, French press or Carafe.
  3. Cover and refrigerate overnight and adjust to your liking.
  4. Strain all the ingredients out of the pitcher and pour through a fine-mesh sieve.
  5. Serve with ice.

Notes: We’ve made several versions of this Cold brew. The 1st being the classic version of just water & Jasmine Dragon Pearls Tea. That was crisp and floral.

The 2nd time was infused with fresh Lychee fruits*. This was slightly fruity, elegant & delicious; however, the lychees were a bit delicate for our taste. We felt it shy-ed away from the tea and didn’t shine as it should. If you prefer to have a more lychee flavor, you can use a blender to mix the lychee fruits with the Jasmine Dragon Pearl Cold Brew. It will create a more robust fruity flavor. Really yummy! This can be made as a slushie too!

*We’ve tried both fresh lychee and canned lychee. The advantage of the canned lychee was being able to use some of the lychee syrup as our sweetener, which enhanced the flavor.
