A recent letter

I ordered a mystery box to share with my partner on our recent kinda vacation... I love how it was wrapped simply with brown paper and tied with twine...

Dr. Adam Elmegirab's Teapot Bitters

As with most people, tea has been has been prevalent throughout my life in various forms and its popularity as a cocktail ingredient has soared in recent years due to the versatility and depth of flavour it offers. Combined with tea’s historical relevance as a key ingredient in traditional punches as well as the medicinal background it shares with bitters, and you have the primary motivation for the creation and subsequent launch of Teapot Bitters in 2012.

Ancient tea and spice routes shaped historic civilisations and their impact can still be felt today in tea rooms around the world with beverages such as Masala Chai (Indian spiced milk tea) garnering an ever-growing global fanbase. Formulas for Masala Chai along with my personal experiences with tea in the United Kingdom and the Middle East provided all the inspiration I needed to create a product unlike any other, which has since gained a cult-like following in every corner of the globe due to their ability in offering a consistent tea flavour to mixed drinks.

Flavor: Amaretto, vanilla, yerba mate, black tea.

Perfect in a gin-based cocktail!

So very simple… A gin heavier on floral components rather than juniper, very small amount of fresh squeezed lemon juice, homemade earl grey tea simple syrup-I prefer to use the double Bergamot version-but don’t boil the teabags to death and don’t leave them in for too long because the tannins will turn it bitter-use your own taste buds, and a few drops of this unique Teapot bitters, and a decent quality sparkling Brut, w/a lemon twist. I think this cocktail could go two ways, into a coupe for proper cocktail service, ingredients stirred,(w/ice-duh), strained and topped with the bubbles and the fresh lemon twist, or for more of a summertime cocktail shaken and poured over fresh ice and topped with bubbles OR soda water and lemon twist, four a bit lighter or refreshing drink! Cheers!
