Leafy cocktail comp


There’s more to cocktails than spirits and bitters… tea, for example. If you’re one for a creative challenge, Rare Tea Co invites you to celebrate their 10th anniversary by adding tea(s) from their Permanent Collection into an original cocktail.

The winner will receive a year’s worth of a bespoke tea created especially for them after consultations with Rare Tea’s founder Henrietta Lovell, known as the Rare Tea Lady, along with a teaware set and a one-year tea subscription. They will also be featured in an exclusive Rare Tea Co video.

Six finalists will be picked by Lovell, along with a selection of bartenders, judging their creations on originality, creativity, taste and presentation.

The finalists will be invited to join the Tea Lady and friends at Rare Tea Co’s anniversary party on 1 September for a grand final. It will be judged by a panel of industry experts, including Mixellany’s Anistatia Miller, cocktail guru Dick Bradsell, Imbibe‘s own Alice Lascelles and Lovell herself – as well as a ‘Secret Surprise’ judge.

You have until 31 July to submit your concoction.
