Mujou is the Japanese concept of finding beauty in impermanence-the changing seasons, life changes, relationships, and nature itself. To celebrate this idea, our in-house mixologist will be creating ever changing iced tea recipes to share with you over the summer.
Here is the recipe for Mujou 1:
18 grams of Green Apple Quince Sencha
4 grams of Moroccan Mint tea
1 level teaspoon of Spearmint tea
1 rounded tea spoon of Peppermint tea
1/4 cup of sugar (or sweeten to taste)
How to make:
Steep tea for 15-20 minutes in a pitcher, then add sugar. Stir sugar well until it dissolves, then add ice cubes.
As a cocktail:
Pour iced Mujou into cocktail shaker over ice, squeeze in a wedge of lemon.
Add 1 half oz. of vodka. Shake well.
Pour over ice into tall glass. Garnish with mint.
