Jasmine Green Tea Pickles With Sesame Seeds

Using my jasmine green tea pearls I made these jasmine green tea pickles. They have a subtle flavour from the tea which is surprisingly pleasant on the palate.

Head straight on to the Recipe For Jasmine Green Tea Pickles ♥

I wrote about how Dave and I went out for breakfast which we did not get. We came to an agreement with the owner that we would come back in during the week for the meal, rather than waste time processing a credit. In our haste to leave, we did not get his name, nor get him to sign anything. And I also didn’t have a receipt as their slips are virtual and only displayed on an iPad. On the Tuesday morning after that we drove up to Somerset West to have a late breakfast. When we arrived the owner was not there. As my phone rang at the same time with a call I had to take, I left Dave to speak to the person on duty. Thankfully he knew about us, and the owner arrived at the same time as I finished on the phone.

We started with espressi and without too long a wait our meal arrived. It was so worth going back for. A generous serving that was really delicious. And now I can understand why James loves going there. We will try to make it a habit to go for breakfast every few months. Not too often as that would spoil the treat. A habit I don’t mind every night is the one we have started of having snacks with a drink before dinner. This is such a nice way to end the working day and all we do is change-up what is on the plate. I made these jasmine green tea pickles to road test a recipe. I loved the flavour of them and think I can expand on this to make unique flavoured pickles in future. Do you have a habit to end the working day?

  1. I really want to make these pickles but I can’t find directions for making the Jasmine Green Tea Pearls. Could you please point me in the direction to make these pearls? Thank you so.

    1. Hi. They are an ingredient that I bought. It’s a flowering green tea. But you can use green tea jasmine tea bags instead.

  2. Tandy what an interesting pickle. Jasmine tea would give a pickle a nice taste. I’ll have to give this a try when our pickling cukes are ready. In my mind the best way to end work is to slide right into happy hour…

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
