10 genius gin and tea fusions for when you just need both in your life

When it comes to choosing my favourite drink in life I have to be honest. Keep it on the down low around here but it’s a bit of a tussle between gin and tea.

There’s something comforting about the warmth of the nation’s favourite tipple but gin… how could any other drink compete with our best friend, the G&T?

Well, the good news is, courtesy of these amazing tea and gin products, you can pretty much have both. That’s right. Here’s how to create an entire afternoon tea based solely around gin.

The Tea

1. Barry’s Tea Gin

As part of a limited release in 2017, Irish tea brand Barry’s Tea teamed up with Blackwater Distillery to create this masterpiece. We think you’ll agree that the result was pretty tea-rrific.

2. Mason’s Tea Edition Dry Yorkshire Gin

If you can’t get your hands on Barry’s Tea, Masons is here for you. Yorkshire tea perfectly compliments the spice and citrus of the gin to create the warmth and bitterness of a good (gin) cuppa.

£34, Amazon 

3.  Gin Fusion Botanical Tea Bags for Gin

Teabags for gin may seem like a crazy idea but they really do exist. These bags let you infuse your gin full of lovely botanicals without any floating bits ruining your perfectly great G&T.

4. Gin & Tonic Tea

Someone had to go there. Fortnum & Mason created an actual gin and tonic tea with real juniper berries.

The decision is not whether to buy this glorious teapot, it’s whether it should hold tea or gin.
