Pt 4: Inspired by Uncle Iroh's Jasmine Dragon
I am high-key in love with this picture— very proud of myself. I also really love this video since it gave me cute cafe vibes so check it out on my tiktok if you haven't already @lifewithtuyen :-)
I also got a thyme plant from the grocery store and its so cute lmaoo the little leaves be in there for no reason 🥰But this was highly requested so here it is! Everything is honestly up to your preference, you can't really go wrong so you don't need to follow everything exactly. If you want the syrup more liquidy, add more water. If you want it sweeter, add more sugar. Don't be afraid to experiment— the world iz yours.
PEACH GREEN TEA 🍑 :
1 peach (I recommend using the yellow peaches since I think it has more flavor)
1-3 tbsp of white or brown sugar (depending on preference)
3 tbsp of water
a couple drops of lemon juice (optional)
Tea (I used green tea but it's up to preference)
To make the peach syrup, start by dicing up your peaches into little cubes (you can keep the skin on). Add your peach cubes into a pot with your sugar (you can use any ratio of brown or white sugar, really depends on your preference— it used 1:1). Heat it up with your splash of water until it boils. Feel free to add in a few drops of lemon juice since this brightens the flavors! Taste as you go. If you want it sweeter, feel free to add more sugar. Cover your pot with a lid and let it bubbly for ~10-15 minutes until the peaches soften. The mixture should be pretty liquidy at this point so mash the peaches around to get more juices.
Take the syrup off the heat and strain the peach bits out if you don't want that in your tea. You have your peach syrup!
Brew your tea and let it cool. I used loose leaf Jasmine Green Tea from the Sunflower Brand that I usually get from my local Asian supermarket but you can use any tea (black, white, green, etc.) you'd like.
Add in some ice and as much or as little of the peach syrup as you'd like, the world is yours!!
Note: Yes, you can and should make a big batch!
