4 Basil leaves
1 Tablespoon lemon zest
1 1/2 ounces orange honey
1 1/2 ounces Grand Marnier
Brew your Jasmine tea while you gather and prep your ingredients. (Jasmine Tea from theTeaspot.com has very high grade spring-picked green tea from China’s Fujian region, lightly scented with fresh jasmine petals, and expertly shaped into pearls, which slowly unfurl into long needle shaped leaves when steeped. Brews into a gorgeous infusion with heavenly aroma.)
Use fresh basil if possible, it will provide better nutrients and flavor.
Combine all ingredients, top with your hot Jasmine tea and enjoy the delicious healing benefits of this “granny woman” recipe.
