Exploring, sipping & delighting in all things tea.
Just put the kettle on. One lump or two?

"I don't like tea... I like gin..."

We recently saw this ad...


...and it reminded us of something...



...we're still very excited about our new postcards...

So we've done a little research on tea and gin and found this nifty little article from Glamour Magazine, aptly named Gin Afternoon Tea. (Which instantly had all of our senses perked up at once).

"Even better, with gin being the tipple of choice these days, bars are pushing the boundaries and creating some truly unique flavour combinations. Hilton's Berry Bar is no exception. Their Earl Grey Martini is an apt fusion of two British traditions, gin and tea! Few realise that gin was once so profusely drunk in Britain that communities brewed it in their baths and in the 1700's more than 14 gallons of gin per person were produced!"

Sounds like it's our kind of place.

And how about this... iced green tea & gin recipe. Which surely has to be the drink of the summer (whilst we're sat here looking at the skies about to burst open and wondering where that woolly cardi has got to).

If only the weather would sort itself out we would be sat in the garden supping away at iced green tea & gin, alas, we're stuck inside, on the brink of saying, we're freezing and eating a sweet, warm waffle smothered in chocolate spread and sipping away at green tea. (We were going for the whole counterbalancing philosophy of life - green tea with it's health benefits (metabolic increase!) in one hand + calorific laden waffle in the other... and we're sorted!).

More very soon...
