In the springtime many people enjoy daydreaming of gorgeous summer days when the sun will throw a wave of heat across their towns and the outdoors will call their names. You can probably feel the warmth already! Lounging out on a sun-streaked terrace, dipping your toes into the pool – enjoying warm weather often means finding ways to stay cool, and fixing up tasty cocktails is high up on many people's lists. But instead of the standard, run-of-the-mill drinks that you always make, why not add a twist that your friends and family will go nuts over?
Lime? Check. Ice? Check. Tea? Wait...Tea?
When you look at common cocktail recipes, tea might not be an ingredient you're used to seeing. But this is no ordinary tea. At Revolution Tea, our Tropical Green Tea blends the flavors and aromatic elements of Dragonwell green tea, Chinese Young Hyson green tea, and pineapple flavoring to create a swarm of scrumptious warm weather flavors that will have you feeling like you've just hopped off the plane in Cancún. Combing these popular hits with mojito mix and white rum, you can orchestrate your own tropical drink that everyone will be lining up for.
