Chilled Lapsang Souching and whiskey are a good match.

Not the biggest lapsang fan, but that sounds like a tasty combo!

My absolute favorite is my version of an Arnold Palmer (AKA iced tea lemonade). I have a herbal lemon tea make of lemon peel (King Tut Lemonade) and I “steep” it in gin, preferably overnight if I have planned things out right. Then I mix the gin with chilled orange pekoe and enjoy.

That sounds AMAZING.

I make tea wine. Cold brew tea (hot brew was bitter), add about a ton of sugar & some yeast. Ferment. Then do some more steps and drink it!

It was especially nice with a jasmine tea. I think I may try a vanilla tea next.

I want to make one with my mint julep tea. Suggestions?

Mandy said

Maybe a recipe like this:
But to use mint julep tea instead of plain water when making the simple syrup?

I have Moroccan Mint from Teavana. Maybe it was meant to be a cocktail.

Caramel AppleTEAni :)
I make apple tea, let it cool, mix with caramel kiss vodka, a bit of apple pucker to make it a little sour, and some simple syrup to taste, shake it like a bubbble tea and drizzle caramel syrup around the rim. It’s ridiculously delicious.

This sounds amazing. What kind of apple tea do you use? And, what exactly is apple pucker?

Has anyone experimented with cocktails using raw pu-erh and Dan Cong? I feel like both could work with gin, but I haven’t tried any combinations yet. Any other ideas?

What about other teas? I think Ye Sheng varietal black teas, fukamushi sencha and some types of hei cha also have potential.
