An afternoon tea mimosa has all the makings and greatness of a bubbly, fruity, and delicious mimosa, but with the added bonus of tea. It will be sure to wow your friends during brunch on a hot day. The flavor of the tea doesn’t overpower the champagne but compliments it with a sweet, fruity taste. From the very first sip, you'll know that you have something special and new in your hand.

All you need is tea, sugar, champagne, and orange juice and you are set to making your new favorite drink. This recipe will make a single cocktail, but just multiply by how many people you are serving and you can make a pitcher mimosa.
