Day 9: Mulled Cider | Tea Advent 2019

Aromatic winter spices: cinnamon, cloves & ginger, steeped with apple chunks to create this mellow & comforting hot tea toddy. ✨

So, what was the inspiration for this blend?

After our Mulled Wine tea was so popular back in 2014 - 15 we knew we needed more mulled teas on the Tea Wall! This brew is the perfect representation of Christmas in a mug! The perfect brew to sip on whilst shopping, exploring & browsing Christmas markets! ❄️

🍹 The History of the Hot Toddy! 🍹

Tea's the season to be jolly and what better way to beat back the winter blues but with a warming hot Toddy!

 

Who invented the Toddy?! No one truly knows when this type of beverage was first created. A possible theory is that the name originated from an Indian drink called a Toddy that was made from fermented palm tree sap and started showing up in the 1700s.

One source says it started by first pouring hot water on scotch whiskey before experimenting with spices at a later date that was coming in from trade with India. Another says it came from an Irish doctor named Robert Bentley Todd, who ordered his patients to drink hot brandy, cinnamon, and sugar water as a medicine.

Either way, it has led us to a widely varied drink perfect for cosying up to on a cold winter's night, filled with seasonal spices!

 

What is a Toddy!? Traditionally this hot cocktail is made with whiskey, honey and lemon but it doesn’t have to stick to a standard recipe. They usually contain some type of liquor, such as whiskey, bourbon or rum; a sweetener, such as honey or sugar; and a warm base like coffee, tea, hot water or apple cider.

If this sounds right up your street we have several ways to spruce up your evening tipple to TEA-lectable new heights!

🎄 4 Top Tea Toddy Recipes... 🎄

 

1. Earl Grey Toddy

 

An Earl Grey Toddy is an easy hot beverage to rustle up on a chilled eve. Brewing Earl Grey Creme with a teaspoon of honey, a cinnamon stick, garnish with an orange slice and top it up with a dash of whiskey or rum makes for a delectable treat!

2. Mulled Cider Toddy

Making mulled cider has never been easier - just brew our fruit tea in a pan with some apple juice, water and a couple of cinnamon sticks! Add star anise if you like at the end to make a delicious alcohol-free beverage, or give it a twist with some spiced rum or brandy. 

You can also cold brew a scrumpy or a still cider with our Mulled Cider tea for a couple of days before warming up on low heat with the same extra ingredients mentioned above!

 

3. Smoky Russian Toddy

 

If you don't fancy something hot but are in need of a nightcap to warm the soul, try an extra smoky whiskey by brewing our Smoky Russian blend of lapsang and let cool before turning them into ice cubes that you can then add to your
evening drink.

4 Wobbly Unicorn Toddy

Having a Christmas party and looking for a festive cocktail to excite your guests? Shake down some Blue Raspberry gin and add some lemon juice to finish and watch the magic
happen!

Steep the tea in gin for 2 days before straining, to give you a base to add to tonic and most importantly a dash of lemon juice. We've named this a Wobbly Unicorn after the Unicorn Fizz iced tea we make in-store.
