If you fancy having a morning drink but are not about that early hour buzz, boy oh boy does Fortnum & Mason have a solution for you.
Just as we think some food items cannot get any odder, out comes this company with a fresh idea that will make you wonder how you went about your normal life before this sweet revelation – the novel tea that tastes just like your favorite boozy concoction.
Pick your poison – Gin & Tonic, Bloody Mary, Lemon Curd, Chocolate Violet, Vanilla Nougat, or Pistachio & Clotted Cream – Fortnum & Mason has it all!
Filling their silky tea bags with spices and blends, the tea company uses everything from handpicked botanicals to juniper berries, including fennel, lemon balm, coriander, cucumber, and lime.
One packet will make you part ways with nearly $9.15 – which means it is definitely not going on the grocery must list for those looking to save a couple of bucks – but it includes 15 satchets described as cockeyed cocktails “without the consequences.” With a catchphrase like that, how can one say no?
These rather unique-flavored tea bags are part of the new ‘Oddi-tea’ range sold, promising the experience of sipping on a cup of tea that masquerades as a classic cup of alcoholic beverage.
Hearing the news of the newest variation added to tea shelves everywhere, people have taken their gratitude and curiosity to social media. Most have expressed excitement about the new product, saying it is “one new quirky trend that could take off.”
Another satisfied customer could not stop himself from raving about the spoken product, saying: “Another said: ‘A cup of tea that tastes like a gin and tonic. Now you’re talking!”
This is not the first time Gin products proved to be profitable – Aldi’s award-winning and best-selling Oliver Cromwell gin is proof to that.
