FANSY AND EASY-TO-MAKE TEA DRINKS

USING TEAS AS MIXERS IN MIXOLOGY

While teas, on their own brewed in water, are tasty, but sometimes you just need something different, and what if you have some leftover teas? Or you need a non-alcoholic beverage option at a party?

In this blog, we have some special recipes that use our teas as mixers to make drinks that are not only fantastically tasty, but also often healthier. 

When you want to make iced tea drinks, make sure you brew the teas as instructed. This means to make the teas a bit stronger than your hot brews.
