If you're just as excited as we were that this could even be a thing, hold on to your knickers, this white tea party is just getting started.
Remember how white tea is jam-packed with antioxidants and supports skin elasticity?
And how can we forget about theanine, that magical amino acid in white tea that gives you a massive mood boost?
Well, what if we added some lime, a little honey, and GIN?
Is that even allowed???
I know, you're dying right now. So are we.
We've tried and tested it and now we're completely hooked.
What's best is we got to buy a whole heap of gin for the experimentation process and write it off as a business expense! Woot woot! And if you're curious if we enjoyed this whole process, why yes, we did.
Here's how we do white tea shots at Tielka:
4 shot glasses
1 tbsp honey
1/2 lime cut into 4 wedges
2 tbsp Moonlight white tea
Boil water, add honey and white tea leaves. Brew for 5 minutes. After tea is brewed, separate white tea leaves from the brew and set aside to cool a little.
Add gin, lime wedges (pinch each one as you add them), brewed white tea, and ice to a cocktail shaker and give a good shake.
Pour into four shot glasses and add one lime wedge to each glass.
If you're feeling bold, serve in two martini glasses!
Alternatively, serve in four martini glasses and top up with soda water.
Want to spice things up a little more?
Muddle some fresh thyme in the mix, or add a little hibiscus while brewing to create a beautiful pink hue (see pic).

You're closing in on the start of your day and feel like you already need a break.
Conversations out loud with small people buzzing at your feet.
Conversations in your head with big people who are most certainly wrong.
You've sorted them all out. You don't feel any better for it.
Where did all the energy go?

You've probably noticed how your day flows better when you start with a cup of tea.
Time for yourself. A moment of clarity.
Your morning cup sets you on a good path for the rest of the day.
Combine that with a mid morning cuppa, early, late afternoon sips and an evening herbal and your day is broken into approachable chunks of time.
It's no secret that habits form the basis of success, and a day built around habitual cups of tea creates a perfect framework to organise your day.

Have you ever noticed there is a solution in nature to almost anything?
Aloe vera applied to skin soothes burns and heals wounds.
Inhaling lavender calms nerves.
Walking along the ocean shore restores the soul.
Nature has been divinely created to meet so many of our needs.
And white tea is no exception.
