Ring in the New Year or any special occasion with this easy tasty twist on Champagne.

To make a concentrated infusion, reduce the recommended water by at least 1/2. If the recommended usage is 2 tbsp with 1 cup of water, steep the tea in 1/2 cup of water and let it steep for at least double the time. I allowed about 15 minutes. Let the tea cool completely, chill it for 1/2 hour.

Pour chilled champagne into shot glasses, and add 2 teaspoons of one of the infusions to each shot glass. champagne shooters_dragonfruit_photography-3

Make as many tea infusions as you like. The fruity ones are more flavour intense than the Green, Oolong, or White tea. You’re guests will love these.

For a traditional Champagne flute serving simply add 2 tbsp of the tea to a 3/4 filled Champagne flute. champagne shooters_dragonfruit_photography-2

Happy New year to everyone. I’m so excited about what 2014 has in store. Stay tunes I’ve got a lot of ideas to share with you.
