Tea Cocktail Anyone?

Isn’t it amazing how many new tea products are showing up these days.  Now if I were a drinking man, or rather, drinking woman, I’d definitely be trying this product.  It is a green tea liqueur called Zen.  You can find it at  I don’t know what it tastes like, but it sure looks pretty.  Here’s a recipe for a cocktail that contains 2 parts Zen, 2 parts vodka and 1/2 part fresh orange juice.  Sounds yummy and potent.  Lately I have been seeing marteanis shown as the new trendy night out drink.  Or for those who like to diy, there is tea-infused vodka.  Just pour a liter of vodka into a pitcher and add 1/2 cup loose tea.  Let it steep for 30 minutes and pour through a paper filter.  Now you’re ready to make a marteani. 

Chinese TeapotHow about an oriental theme evening high tea?  I can picture bamboo placemats, tetsubin teapots and lots of delicious brewed green tea.  Now, I think it’s time to go investigate the sparkling tea that has recently come on the market.

I had a friend who infused matcha with vodka, in his freezer, for several weeks. He said it was "interesting." :-) I'm not much of an alcohol drinker, aside from wine, so it would be lost on me.
