  • white sugar for rimming
  • 1 wedge lemon
  • 1 1.5 fluid ounce jigger fresh lemon juice
  • 2 fluid ounces simple syrup


  1. Pour the gin into a small glass, then sprinkle the tea leaves over it. Let the tea steep for 2 hours.

  2. Pour 1/4 to 1/2 inch of sugar onto a small plate and moisten the rims of 2 martini glasses with the lemon wedge. Dip the moistened glasses into the sugar to make your prepped glasses.
