Yup that’s right a tea cocktail! I heard about the idea when perusing the Adagio Tea website. It’s my new favorite in Chicago. The store just off of the Mag Mile has probably 100 different teas which can be completely intimidating. However, the staff is fabulous! They walk you through and help you find the perfect tea. And let you try it! They will make any tea you want to try and for me it was several. I typically like an earthy, complex black tea and found a great keenum. But I also picked up some Wild Strawberry herbal tea. Which technically has no tea leaves in it but flowers, apples and berries. It’s light and not overly sweet. A perfect base for a summer cocktail!
Easy, tasty and very refreshing. A Strawberry Tea-tail!
