Green Fruits in Jasmine Tea Syrup
Joanna described this lovely fruit salad as Jasmine tea and sweetened lime juice that transform a simple trio of green fruits into an ambrosial offering. Its memory will linger on your taste buds. Savor the fruit alone or with a scoop of green tea ice cream. I couldn’t have said it better myself!

  1. Bring 1/3 cup of water just to a boil in a small saucepan.
  2. Add the jasmine tea, remove the pan from the heat, and steep for 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Strain into a clean pan, pressing to extract as much liquid as possible, and discard the tea leaves.
  4. Add the sugar and lime zest to the pan. Over medium heat, stir until the sugar dissolves, then bring the liquid to a boil.
