Novel Idea Tea Cocktail Recipe

Our Reading Nook Blend tea was the first Plum Deluxe tea, and has always been a best seller. It’s just a fun, floral black tea. It’s also the tea Plum Deluxe gets the most requests for using in recipes. Today, I’m sharing a creative tea cocktail that’s great for happy hour regardless of the season; it’s all-but-guaranteed to give you a pick-me-up.

This is one of those lovely sippers that goes down a little too easily. It’s not as sweet as the ingredients might imply, and the addition of the Reading Nook Blend gives it a wonderful floral flavor.
