The advantage of being a house of teas that is not boring, is that we always have interesting colors, textures and flavors to play around with. Also something that would be less toxic for the body is a tea cocktail.

While an iced tea can be made from most of our flavorful hot teas, there are certain heady cocktails that can really liven the evening up.

Cider Clubbing: If a spicy blend of apple, figs and chai sounds right up your alley, our Apple Cider Punch is a must. Infused with our Spiced Apple Rooibos tea and a warming base of rum, it’s a deliciously festive way to kick things up on the last few cold days of the year. Warning: may lead to table dancing.
