A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of sipping on delicious tea cocktails developed by Sander Raav, Seattle mixologist, tea enthusiast, and Bar Manager at The Tin Table. The Tin Table is an off-the-beaten path restaurant and bar located on the second floor of the historic Oddfellows Building on Capitol Hill, one of Seattle’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
Four custom cocktails were created with a hand-picked selection of our high-quality, organic loose leaf teas. Each drink had its own character, further amplified by their unique serving vessels. We sipped on a delicate and savory Sencha green tea drink, a creative Chamomile Sidecar with chamomile foam, and a tropical, sunny cocktail with a hint of spice made with Cranberry Hibiscus. Sander kindly shared his recipes with us and we’ve picked our favorite for you to try at home, the Chai Mai Tai, perfect for summer porch sipping.
