Today, teaxplorer is chatting with Alex Holland, Founder of the Real Tea People, who is running TEA and ALCOHOL, a tea cocktail pop-up this month in Brixton.
teaxplorer: What’s TEA and ALCOHOL?
Alex: Classic cocktails made better with tea. For example an Grey and Tonic, which is like a traditional G&T where the gin has been infused with a lightly bergamotted Earl Grey.
teaxplorer: Why are you doing TEA and ALCOHOL?
Alex: The Real Tea People are reversing the decline of our national drink by converting you to loose leaf tea. We treat tea like a real drink, one which deserves at least the same level of respect as coffee or wine.
