Tea just got cooler!
Tea is one of the oldest beverages in the world, and can be traced back to China almost 5000 years ago! It is the second most consumed beverage in the world after water. And believe it or not - there are over 20,000 teas in the world! Here at Brewhouse, we are a bunch of tea lovers, and we know that it takes high quality tea leaves to brew a cup of real good tea.
For our new coolers range, we wanted to use different teas to create interesting combinations with lemon juice, herbs and fruit flavours. We got together with Tea Studio in Coonoor, a women-run organization that works with small farmers, to source four main varieties of teas - Black, Oolong, Green and White - that all come from the same tea plant but differ in their oxidation levels and - in the case of white tea at least - the type of leaves used. Tea Studio is a micro factory that is adept at creating wonderful whole leaf tea blends. Each of our refreshing coolers is brewed with whole-leaf loose tea and matched with flavours that complements the tea.
Strawberry Cooler with Black Tea and Hibiscus
Taking a leaf from the book of Persian royalty, we infused Tea Studio’s full-bodied black tea with hibiscus petals and rounded it off with punchy strawberry flavour.
Hibiscus tea is deep red with tangy berry-like notes. Lemon juice adds more sourness which is balanced by the bold black tea, organic sugar and topped with strawberry flavour. This one is a flavour bomb, and it has just the right kick to get you up and running!
Not only does this cooler have a gorgeous red colour, black tea is also said to keep blood pressure, cholesterol and weight in check.
Ginger Turmeric Cooler with Oolong Tea
Oolong is a traditional semi-oxidised Chinese tea which is also slightly roasted, and it represents only 2% of the tea that is produced around the world, so you could call it a rari-tea! It combines the properties of black tea and green tea, and the difference is in the way that the tea is processed. This tea is a treasure trove of benefits too, for heart health, glowing skin and brain function among other things.
We combined this lovely tea with the warm and spicy extracts of ginger and turmeric, because Oolong is quite a friendly tea and allows other flavours to shine, while holding its own.
The Ginger Turmeric Cooler has a perfect balance of floral, spicy and earthy tones. Take a sip and let this zen lemonade wash over your little worries!
Mango Cooler with White Tea
The rarest of the rare, white tea is the least produced tea in the world. The tea leaves and buds are plucked before they are fully open. They are covered in fine white hairs which is where this tea gets its name.
Our Mango Cooler looks, feels and tastes like a bright sunny day in a wonderful summer - subtle white tea, a slight kick of ginger and sweet, tropical mango. What is not to love?
It is also rich in antioxidants, helps protect your teeth from bacteria, combats skin aging and aids you in your weight loss journey!
Garden Mint Cooler with Green Tea
Coming to one of the most popular teas in the world, green tea is considered a superfood. Green tea has the most amount of flavonoids, which are plant-based antioxidants.
Our Garden Mint Cooler strikes a balance between the freshness of mint, the zing of lemons and the nuttiness of green tea.
Green tea is said to fight certains types of cancer, cardiovascular disease and keeps your diabetes in check.
Our new Brewhouse Coolers are made with freshly brewed tea, natural fruit flavours and organic cane sugar. They are super refreshing and just what you need at any time of the day! Get your own customizable pack of 6 glass bottles on our website!
