Teeling Winter Spiced Tea
The Winter Spiced Tea is part of our series of seasonal cocktails curated exclusively for the Teeling Whiskey Distillery’s Teeling Tasting Tours. Crafted by our Global Brand Ambassador, Kevin Hurley, this winter warmer is perfect for those long cold evenings this festive season. We hand select a different blend from Wall & Keogh’s selection of organic loose leaf teas for each of these cocktails to create an infusion that captures the flavours of each season.
This recipe features Wall & Keogh’s Put The Cat Out Tea which contains organic chamomile flowers, lime blossom, lavender, mint and liquorice leaves. Wall & Keogh have a selection of over 150 loose leaf organic tea blends in their South Richmond Street tea house.
