Happy Sunday! After today, only 2 more Sundays until Christmas!
Today’s experiment was a bit involved. I made a cold brew of the Pear White tea from Revolution Tea. Meaning I placed 2 tea bags in a half gallon pitcher of cold water into the refrigerator for 7 hours. Then I warmed up 10 ounces of tea to infuse spices for 5 minutes.
The photo above shows cardamom, cinnamon, a clove, and star anise that I broke up with Pestar (my mortar and pestle).
Once those were infused, I added 1.75 ounces of gin (New Amsterdam). I will admit that it may have been a tad strong. One ounce of gin may be just fine.
The trick to this fine spiced pear-tea-ini is to stir it before each sip to ensure the gin is equally distributed before drinking.
