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 www.zenliqueur.com. 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.
How 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.
