White tea is infused with jalapeno and sweetened with pineapple juice and agave nectar for a flavorful herbal iced tea.
2 white tea bags, 2 Tbsp. Litehouse Instantly Fresh Jalapeno, 4 c. boiling water, 1 c. pineapple juice, 2 Tbsp. agave nectar or honey, Fresh pineapple chunks for garnish, Fresh jalapeno slices for garnish
Place the jalapeno in the center of a piece of cheesecloth about 4” long and 4”wide. Wrap the cheesecloth around the jalapeno creating an herb satchel and tie closed with kitchen string. A coffee filter will work just as well for this task. Place the tea bags and herb satchel in a pitcher. Pour in the boiling water. Allow tea bags to steep 3-5 minutes before removing. Do not squeeze liquids from the tea bags, this will result in bitter tea. Taste the tea every 15 minutes or so to check intensity of the jalapeno. I like mine spicy so I left it in until ready to serve, you may want just a hint of jalapeno which will take a mere 15 minutes. Stir in pineapple juice and agave nectar. Place in refrigerator until cool. To serve pour the tea into an ice filled glass. Garnish the glass with pineapple chunks and jalapeno slices.
