A tea smoothie!? Yes, tea and flowers make excellent drinks and are easy to prepare. Tea is extremely popular here in southeast Asia, so it makes sense that there are both hot and chilled options. Finding exciting combinations and flavours can be a challenge, and this combo of jasmine and mint is inspired by a drink that is served in a café, here in Bali. After tasting this tea-based smoothie, you will feel euphoric. Jasmine does that.
2 cups jasmine tea
½ cup vanilla soy milk (or almond milk)
1 cup ice cubes
5 mint leaves
sugar to taste
Brew the tea, remove the leaves, and chill. Pour all ingredients into a blender and blend until you have a slush. If you don’t like the idea of drinking whole mint leaves, you may optionally use a drop of mint oil, but watch out, it is strong!
Drink this potion when you need to relax.
