Pekoe Tea Edinburgh Shop 20 Leven Street Edinburgh
After just over a decade we are saying goodbye to our shop at 20 Leven Street this month with our last trading day on Saturday 24th July.  We're not closing down - we're moving to Leith, in the north of Edinburgh.
This is a really simple iced tea that you can make in 10 minutes using a cocktail shaker.  No need to leave the tea to chill overnight.  A couple of years ago we experimented with this method of making iced tea using Lapsang Souchong, so I thought the same technique would work well with our Islay Whisky Tea.  The smokey earthy notes are quite unusual but very refreshing, it's a great option for a non-alcoholic drink on a summers day.
Saturday the 12th of June 2021 is International World Gin Day so I thought I would share my recipe forApothecary Rose G&Tea Iced Tea.  The botanicals in the Secret Garden Gin Teas really pick up the flavours of a gin and tonic, except there's no alcohol involved.
One of the questions we are asked most frequently is: Are your tea bags plastic free?  The short answer is yes because we don't use nylon or conventional mineral oil plastics.  But it does not fit with our ethos at PekoeTea to simply boast about having plastic free tea bags without delving further and answering the questions about what our tea bag material made from.
