The Teasmith Original ABV 43%

Updated: Jun 24, 2020

I know I’ve spoken about tea in previous posts but I’m back here talking about it again. When I were younger my family and I would go to Punjab, India to visit my grandparents and family every few years. I have lots of fond memories, running through the fields my family owned, being terrified of the water buffaloes on our farm and my mother telling me to drink tea. My mother always told us to drink it, “someone has gone to the effort to make it for you so drink up.” Indian tea is very very sweet and well who wants a hot drink which can I say takes forever to cool down, when it’s 35 degrees? I didn’t grow up liking Indian tea like most Indians do.

I didn’t grow up liking Indian tea like most Indians do.  

It was probably the first thing I learnt to make properly, whenever we had guests over my mother would always give me the look.... I knew the look was “go put the saucepan on the hob and make cups of tea”  I now get told my cup of cha (Indian tea) is the yummiest in the family. I think they only say this so I will willingly make them endless amount of cups.

Garnished with Mint and Lemon
The Ultimate Scottish G&T

Tea-smith Original gin is the first gin from Scotland to use Tea as its main botanical. Other botanicals used are Juniper Berries, Licorice Root, Coriander and Orange Peel. These botanicals are distilled twice in traditional copper stills. This gin is very refreshingly crisp. For the perfect G&T garnish with Mint and Lemon.
