Cookbook Countdown #5 ~ Honey & Co's Plum & Vanilla iced tea (for autumn)

 Welcome to Cookbook Countdown
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
I scaled down the recipe to a third ie three plums,
to 600ml of water, used enough sugar to caramelized the plums
and used no base sugar syrup cos I enjoy sugar free flavored tea!
one piece Jasmin green tea bag infused in the boiling 600ml water
add the tea infused water to the caramelized plum
let the mixture sit for 10 mins, strained,
served with lots of ice,

  1. Lovely tea! Perfect for our hot weather!

  2. That looks so lovely and refreshing Emily. We finally have iced tea weather but no local plums until September. I like that you're continuing to cook from these books this month. I need to revisit the ones I've already used to make the recipes that weren't seasonally appropriate at the time.
