I have been longing to try some lilac tea…seeing as I have a lilac bush right in my backyard I decided to try making it myself! I wasn’t sure how delicate the flavor would turn out so I picked the lightest tea I had which turned out to be the perfect choice.
1st infusion: 3 minutes
The liquor is a pale gold, almost shimmering, with a delicate lilac note and a lightly vegetal aftertaste.
2nd infusion: 5 1/4 minutes
Same color but the flavor is a bit lighter.
I still have lots of lilac left…wonder what I should try blending it with next.
