Tea-Infused Simple Syrup

Tea-Infused Simple Syrup


1 cup water
2 tablespoons loose tea leaves, your choice
1 cup granulated sugar

Cooking Instructions

1. Bring water to steeping temperature for the tea you've chosen (for example, boiling for black tea; simmering for green tea). Steep for the usual amount of time (for example, about 5 minutes for Earl Gray; about 3 minutes for green tea).

2. Strain tea. Bring tea to a boil. Add sugar and stir until completely dissolved.

3. Reduce heat and cook 10 to 12 minutes or until syrup reduces to half its original volume.

4. Remove pan from heat and cool syrup for 30 minutes. When cool, pour syrup into clean glass jar with tight fitting lid.

5. Refrigerate. Use within 4 to 6 months.

6. Serving suggestions: add a teaspoon or two to chilled drinks or hot beverages; drizzle over fresh fruit; use as syrup for pancakes and waffles; use to glaze fruit tarts
