This delightful jasmine/peppermint concoction was dreamed up by my co-worker Steph, who couldn’t remember if she’d used the pearls or a jasmine white tea previously. Naturally I made her blend both for me. This is a little awkward to brew, mostly because you need to make sure you scoop up some peppermint along with your preferred amount of pearls. I waited until all the leaves had unravelled in the cup before pulling out my infuser, which may have been a touch too long as the jasmine was a bit bitey and the peppermint overwhelmed a little. The second 4 minute steep of this is perfect though, it mellows out quite nicely!
