If there’s one gin that goes down a real treat, it’s Isle of Harris Gin. The gin uses nine botanicals to create a distinct and smooth flavour that is simply delicious. Take it from us when we say it’s one of our favourites.
That’s why we were delighted when we spied that the gin also comes as a tea.
We’ve long known that gin and tea is an infusion that actually works. Whether it’s a good cup of Earl Grey gin or actual gin and tonic tea, botanicals and blending is as much part of our favourite cuppa as it is in our choice tipple.
This Isle of Harris Gin Tea genuinely reproduces the taste and profile of its gin counterpart by using the same botanicals.
Juniper, coriander, angelica root, orange peel, liquorice root, cassia bark and sugar kelp combine to make one pretty unique gin and brew alike.
The sugar kelp is actually hand harvested by a local diver from the deep underwater forests of the Outer Hebrides. Never again will we be content with our basic teabags at the back of the cupboard.
Even the recommended serve for the gin is incorporated in the corresponding tea.
The distillers recommend that you try their gin ‘on the rocks’, adding a few drops of their Sugar Kelp Aromatic Water and a piece of pink or red grapefruit. However, you’ll also find a hint of this zingy fruit in the tea.
It’s delicious as hot brew or cold brew infusion. Best of all, you can actually mix it with Isle of Harris Gin to make a fabulous gin tea cocktail.
As it’s a herbal caffeine-free blend, now you can enjoy a cuppa without the caffeine fix… or hangover for that matter.
Isle of Harris Gin Tea is available from eteaket.co.uk from £5.55.
