Cheers to a boozy - vegan and gluten free - brew!
For those with a penchant for tea, whisky or both, British brand NOVELTEA has paired the two and created The Tale of Oolong - an infusion of Chinese oolong tea with red rose petals, papaya, mango flakes and Scotch whisky. The Tale of Oolong is the brand's third infusion of tea with spirit, the ready-to-drink tipple can be served either hot, cold or as a key cocktail ingredient.
Developed by artisan mixologists, NOVELTEA originally launched their concept in 2017 with The Tale of Earl Grey (an infusion of black Earl Grey tea with British gin and botanicals) and The Tale of Tangier (an infusion of Moroccan green mint tea withspearmint, dried lemongrass, dried apple, blackberry leaves and Caribbean white rum).
Britain is a nation of tea lovers. After water, it's the most consumed beverage. Founders Efferoth and Passia are on a mission to disrupt the drinks industry and create a new category in the alcohol market – tea with spirit.
