Jasmin Mo Li Hua


Fu Dao Spring-Summer Ice Tea Recipes

Sparkling Jasmin iced tea, flavoured with jasmine and brown sugar. A change from the ordinary, with a sweet and floral flavour.

4 cups of water, 80°C
3 teaspoons of loose Jasmine tea Mo Li Hua
5 teaspoons of brown sugar
1 1/4 cups sparkling water

Dissolve sugar in the 4 cups of steeped (around 6 minutes) jasmin tea. Stir or whisk until fully blended. Strain out the tea, and let it cool slightly. Add sparkling water and cool thoroughly. Serve over ice. Can be served with cinnamon sticks or a slice of orange.


Lime Mint Iced Tea
A simple iced tea, with a twang of lime and hint of mint. It’s both sweet and tart at the same time but note that the lime juice will be much better flavoured if freshly squeezed.


1 quart water, 80°C
10g of Long Jing green tea
1 3/4 cups of fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of lime juice

Mix tea, mint and sugar in hot water (80°C), and let steep for 15 minutes. Strain out the tea and mint leaves. Chill and add lime juice before serving. Lemon can be used instead of lime for a mellower taste.


Cranberry Honey Ice Tea
Very refreshing in the summer. This recipe is nicely flavoured without being too sweet. Make sure you use only honey, no sugar!


2 cups of Fu Dao Black tea (Hong Cha)
2 cups cranberry juice
1/4 cup honey

Mix cranberry juice, tea and honey. Whisk until honey is dissolved. Serve cold over ice. You can substitute raspberry juice, instead of cranberry for a sweeter taste.


Fu Dao Iced Teas can also be enjoyed at the restaurant Vis à Vis in Berlin
