Raspberry Bergamot shrub — a rich, plum-red infusion delicately scented with Italian bergamot oil — creates a heavenly spritzer when blended with Japanese Sencha green tea. The unique method of cold infusing green tea (described below) was adapted from Sebastian Beckwith’s inspirational web site and description of tea traditions. (Of course, if you want to bypass the ritual and just brew 8 ounces of double-strength green tea the regular way, this will work too.)
