Steep Echo Tea launches Boozy Summer Stir, Shake & Sip series

Steep Echo Tea from Bel Lavoro Orchards has announced its Boozy Summer Stir, Shake & Sip Series, featuring three new cocktail concoctions created with Steep Echo’s caffeine free olive leaf tea blends.

First in the new series of recipes is the Steep Echo Bloom Gin Gimlet, followed closely by the refreshing Steep Echo Ginger Hush Fizz and the Steep Echo Tend Tea-Tini, to be released in July 2020.

With all natural olive leaf teas serving as the base for each cocktail, the Bloom Gin Gimlet features Steep Echo’s distinctive Bloom tea; an immune-boosting blend that fuses organic olive leaf with Peppermint, Echinacea Root, Licorice Root, Thyme, Rosemary and Natural Cranberry Flavour. 

Steep Echo’s recipe for the Bloom Gin Gimlet is as follows: Add to the Bloom iced tea blend, Thai basil springs, lime, honey/sugar, Gin and ice:

  • Brew Steep Echo Bloom tea in a small pot using two sachets
  • Steep tea for several hours and let cool (2-3)
  • Muddle lime, herbs and honey (or sugar) in a cocktail shaker
  • Add ice, Bloom tea and gin
  • Shake and pour (garnish of choice)

“There is a preconception that tea is meant to be a more serious beverage and only sipped hot or on it’s own over ice, but we discovered that our all natural tea blends make for the perfect ingredients for summertime imbibing,” noted Bel Lavoro owner, Kimberly Branum. “We came up with this idea of Steep Echo Tea cocktails so we could showcase our tea’s versatility and depth of flavours that pair so great with different alcohol categories.”

Steep Echo is one of very few tea makers worldwide to exclusively use the olive leaf for its production.
