Enjoy JING at…Tate
Tate Modern, Bankside, London
In the first of our new newsletter series on where to enjoy JING teas when you are out and about we feature one of our favourite cultural institutions, Tate. We are very proud to supply Tate around the UK – Tate Modern and Tate Britain in London, Tate Liverpool and Tate St. Ives. In this newsletter we would like to highlight some of the great exhibitions taking place at the galleries, along with their tea highlights. Why not plan a trip, safe in the knowledge that you can relax with a cup of fine tea at the end of your visit?
Tate have a carefully selected JING tea range, including some of our most popular loose teas and herbal infusions including Darjeeling 2nd Flush, White Peony, Jasmine Pearls, Yellow Gold oolong, Rooibos and Lemon Verbena. Our whole leaf teabags are also available to take away at Tate Modern.
The wonderful barmen on the top floor of Tate Modern have put together some great cocktail recipes using our teas. The menu includes inspired twists on established classics like Martini, Negroni and Rob Roy, using our Earl Grey, herbal infusions and Lapsang. To view the complete list of recipes click here.
All of the tea cocktails use tea syrups. To make these syrups, simply pour into a pan a 300ml cup of tea and add 150ml of sugar. Heat the mixture and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Taste for strength and add more tea leaves if needed. Depending on the cocktail, this syrup should be enough for 10 or more cocktails.
