The Wolseley launches sparkling tea
Hot on the heels of announcing our tea partnership with The Wolseley, we have collaborated on a brand spanking new tea concept: the Canton Sparkling Tea.
Cold, alcohol-free drinks are hot right now as people are fed up with the over sweet, bottled juices and soft drinks mainly on offer. There is a great opportunity to supply the growing demand for lighter, more complex, less sweet options. Make them yourselves and they bring a distinctive twist to differentiate you - and great margins.
Mocktails can be quite a commitment and are not always appropriate for lunch. Iced tea is a superb option but hasn’t been fully embraced in the UK just yet. Perhaps it’s reputation is tainted by the super-sweet US counterpart? Well, we’re working on that (just see our Simple Iced Tea recipe).
In the meantime, we’ve taken tea-inspired drinks to the next level with a delicious sparkling tea – thirst-quenching and ideal with food, morning, noon and night.
Alice explains the thinking behind them:
The Wolseley is the first of our partners to launch, with sparkling Earl Grey, sparkling Berry and Hibiscus and sparkling Jasmine Bud. Each one is served over ice and topped with citrus peel and chilled soda water. The recipes were developed by Alice Evans, Canton’s Head of Tea, in close collaboration with Head Barista at The Wolseley, Lukas Krupala.
Ideal as a non-alcoholic aperitif or with Afternoon Tea, these deliciously different, long cool drinks complement sweet and savoury food. Try them this summer at The Wolseley, Piccadilly.
