Zen Green Tea Cocktails

Warm up by the fire with a ZEN CHAI TODDY, an Invigorating hot spiced tea with a rich green soul.


ZEN CHAI TODDY

3 parts ZEN GREEN TEA LIQUEUR
4 parts prepared Gold-Tipped Assam Black Tea
1 part Heavy Cream
Chai Spices

Combine hot Assam Tea, Cream, and ZEN.
Pour into mug.
Garnish with Cinnamon Stick.

Assam, the malty, deep, and strong black tea varietal named for its Indian home state, where it was discovered growing wild in the 1800's. The comfort food of the tea world.


Liberated by white tea and emboldened by berries, the ZEN, WHITE & BLUE is ideal for spring time sipping. Try it with a midday brunch.

Serve on the rocks.
Garnish with Fresh Mint.

Silver Needle is the classic Chinese white tea, consisting only of the youngest single leaf bud plucked from each branch. Flavor notes of straw and melon are common, light in color but very full-bodied, a perfect complement to fresh fruit.


Relaxing jasmine lingers amidst soft tropical flavors, in the ZEN BLOSSOM, a refreshing summertime sipper.
