Teas for drinks

Have you ever thought of combining your favorite tea with a hint of electricity? This may not be an obvious observation, but tea is an excellent base for drinks - both non-alcoholic and with alcohol. Preparing tea with an insert is extremely simple, but above all , remember about the right proportions! Do not overdo the amount of alcohol, because too much may mute the taste of both the tea infusion and additives such as: fruits, spices or herbs. Moderation is the key word in this case! Another important issue is matching the taste of the tea to the alcohol and the above-mentioned additives - we want these flavors to complement each other. And this is where our post comes in handy.

Which Basilur teas can be used to prepare drinks?

The blue tea set will allow you to prepare up to 4 drinks! The decorated gift tea box contains the following compositions:

  • Grand Lavender – with the aroma of lavender and blueberries.
  • Rosy Blue Pea – with the aroma of white rose and vanilla.
  • Sapphire Lotus – with the aroma of lotus flower and apple.
  • Zesty Elderflower – with the aroma of elderberry and orange.

Each of them contains a Ternatine clitoria. It is thanks to this extraordinary plant that magic happens when brewing tea! Well, clitoria is brewed into a beautiful, intense blue color, which resembles the color of a precious stone - sapphire.

Another surprising aspect of these compositions is that you can create your own color variations of the infusion. This is possible because clitoria is a pH-sensitive plant.
