The Drinks Report: Iced Chai Latte Recipe

After last week’s foray into iced green tea, today I was looking for something milky to accompany a slice of cake and potting up my plants. I absolutely love chai, and I’m going through a real iced coffee phase at the moment, so I decided to go for an iced chai latte recipe that I…

The Drinks Report: Iced Green Mint Tea

I’m a little late with this week’s Drinks Report – I hadn’t drunk anything particularly inspiring this week and felt a little at a loss, but I hope this refreshing summery drink will make up for this! Yesterday we popped into Leaf for a light early evening supper and I was excited to see that…

The Drinks Report: Instant Teas

Alongside the food report, I am also starting a drinks report – here you’ll find tea, coffee, wine and the occasional wildcard. Enjoy! As a lover of tea, I was dubious about the idea of instant teas. It conjures up visions of weak Lipton Instant and overly sugary drinks. But Whittard’s does a really extensive…
