The Botanical Magic of Tea in Gin

Because of their affinity, gin and tea are natural botanical bedfellows, adding complexity to one another when used in concert. In the early 2000s, Desmond Payne, Master Distiller (now emeritus) at Beefeater Gin, created Beefeater 24, which included Sencha and Chinese green teas as key differentiators in the botanical list. Since then, thanks in great part to the cocktail renaissance, multiple companies have incorporated teas into their gins, producing spirits whose profiles can gently or aggressively reflect the types of tea they employ.

BRU Maker One

Automated Brewers

BRU is on a mission to simplify the tea-making process. This innovative automated brewer offers the freedom to set your brewing time, water temperature, and cup size at the twist of a dial and push of a button that allows you to perform a ''stacked steep'' with three different infusions. The first infusion maximizes the tea's aromatics, the second extracts natural sugars, and the third extracts phytonutrients and polyphenols. The machine saves your previous settings so you can quickly repeat the process without changing the settings every time.

Turkish Tea Pot

Electric Kettles

Electric kettles are much more convenient, faster, and safer than using the stove or microwave to heat water. Kettles should ideally permit heating water to several pre-set temperatures. Delicate floral teas require far lower temperatures than robust black tea or Pu'er. Safety shut-offs, efficient boilers, and sturdy construction with comfortable handles and wide mouths for filling are minimums.

Nepal Tea Collective | Tea Club

Tea Clubs & Subscriptions

Annual subscriptions for tea are growing in popularity more many reasons. Subscription plans are convenient and encourage tea discovery. Tea sellers love the flexibility of offering a range of teas that reveal current trends and consumer preferences for organic teas, for example.
