What better way to celebrate World Gin Day then with a tea infused cocktail. We've combined our very our own Nighty Night Tea with Pink Gin, Elderflower Cordial Grapefruit Juice and plenty of ice and the results were amazing.
Ingredients 5g Nighty Night Tea 100ml pink gin 100ml spiced rum 100ml elderflower cordial 100ml pink grapefruit juice Thyme sprigs, to garnish Ice
Brew the Nighty Night Tea with 500ml boiling water (approx.1 cup), steep for 2-3 mins. Remove the tea leaves and leave to cool for 5 mins or longer.
Pour into a large jug with the pink gin, rum, elderflower cordial and juice. Add ice and stir, then add the thyme sprigs and stir again before serving.
Our very own Chinese Lychee Jasmine Tea adds a subtle flavour to muffins, and adding baking soda directly to the tea cuts any bitterness that might occur from brewing. Using a food processor makes the thick batter incredibly easy to mix, but you can also make it by hand with a wooden spoon. These muffins are best the day they’re baked.
We hope you enjoyed the first instalment of our back to basics written by the lovely Kimberly from the Tea Is A Wish Your Heart Makes blog. We have learned how the tea leaves are processed and turned into what we know as black tea. Today Kimberly is walking us through the green tea and oolong (one of our favourite brews!).
We have teamed up with a lovely blogger Kimberly who will walk us through… the basics of tea! What makes a black tea different to oolong, how are the leaves are prepared before we get to enjoy them – all is revealed in Kimberley’s introduction to tea. This week it is all about black tea!
