An Isle of Harris ‘G & Tea’
Edinburgh based eteaket, has collaborated with Isle of Harris Distillery, to create an unusual tea blend which is made from the unique botanicals used in its Isle of Harris Gin.
The Isle of Harris Gin Tea is a herbal caffeine-free blend and includes Juniper, Coriander, Angelica Root, Cubebs, Orange Peel, Liquorice Root, Cassia Bark and Sugar Kelp which is hand harvested by a local diver from the deep underwater forests of the Outer Hebrides. This unusual botanical gives the gin (and now this tea) its distinctive flavour and special smoothness.
Erica Moore, Founder of eteaket, said:
“This has been a pet project of mine for a while as my Mum is from the Isle of Harris and I spent a lot of my youth there. I’m pleased we’ve been able to create a distinct, complementary tea blend that sits well alongside the wonderful Isle of Harris Gin.”
Simon Erlanger, Managing Director of Isle of Harris Distillery, said:
“As the Social Distillery, we enjoy connecting with like-minded people. Tea and gin are both sociable things and this partnership with eteaket is a marvellous way of combining the two.”
The Harris Gin Tea is available to purchase online at www.eteaket.co.uk, in the eteaket Tea Store (111 Rose Street), the eteaket Tea Room (41 Frederick St) and at the Isle of Harris Distillery. 100g of Harris Gin Tea retails at £7.95, which is enough for approximately 40 pots.
The eteaket Tea Store is also a Click and Collect point for Isle of Harris Gin.
