Jasmine Downy Pearl Sparkling TeaAuthor: Layla Osberg

This drink is reflective of the season; the bubbles and evocative jasmine tea balls, called 'pearls,' are reminiscent of fancy parties, entertaining and extravagant gift giving that fill the holiday time. It’s also a drink that suits the various gatherings that pop up. It would work well for an impromptu drop-in from friends, accompany a Christmas feast, a New Years' toast, or even a solo afternoon pick-me-up.

We’ve also taken into consideration the fact that you've likely got enough cooking or holiday baking on your plate, so you’ll find this recipe refreshingly simple and can even be kept in the fridge until ready to serve. Happy gathering!
