    Cold brewed tea: Taste unlocked

    Cold brewing is the process of steeping tea in cold water. It extracts maximum flavour from loose leaf tea, far more smoothly than regular hot brewing can. This is because lower temperatures slow the extraction process, enabling much longer steep times without bitterness. Cold brewing also reduces the level of any tea caffeine present, and after 12 hours, it better preserves the tea’s antioxidants.

    Cold brew our featured organic teas below, and your mocktails will be Michelin-esque, with visually attractive elixirs and unique flavours ranging from refreshing and sublime, to simply indescribable.

    Blue Beauty

    An amethyst philanthropist who shares her beauty

    Organically grown in Thailand, butterfly pea flower has long been used in the region for radiant skin, hair and eyes. It renders a deep electric blue liquor, which makes the mocktail version a misnomer, since the pH of kombucha and lemon changes it to amethyst. Enamour your guests as they watch cobalt blue ceding the stage to a plunging violaceous mist. With antioxidant-rich silver needle white tea sourced from an organic tea garden in Yunnan, along with measures of ginger and lemongrass, this metabolic mocktail is a beauty salon in a glass.  

    The mixer is Nexba sugar-free rose lemonade kombucha, juxtaposing a dose of idyllic sweetness with Blue Beauty’s subtle sophistication.

    Ingredients

    Blue Beauty
    Nexba Rose Lemonade Kombucha
    Fresh organic lemon
    Fresh organic mint

    Steps

    1. To your glass, add ¼ ice.
    2. Fill ¾ with Blue Beauty cold-brewed tea.
    3. Fill ¼ with Nexba Rose Lemonade Kombucha.
    4. Add 1 slice of fresh lemon & fresh mint.

    Enjoy!

    Elba Island

    The trip of a lifetime without leaving your seat

    Elba Island is an incredibly refreshing tectonic collision of flavour: two high-grade Oriental blacks, roasted cacao husk from Peru, and Madagascan vanilla bean, the sweet perennial currency of the African island. It all comes together in a mocktail like a frosted sunset, while the elementary orange peel and mint gallop unsupervised through a tableau vivant of taste. Though packed with traditional digestive benefits, the focus is on the flavours, which arrive in compelling layers.

    The mixer is Nexba Lime, Cucumber & Mint Tonic Water, or you can infuse classic tonic water yourself with fresh garnishes of the same name. To make it sing, it’s well worth getting the organic vanilla extract – those few drops in the recipe are metamorphic.

    Ingredients

    Elba Island
    Nexba Lime, Cucumber & Mint Tonic Water
    Fresh organic orange
    Fresh organic mint
    Organic vanilla extract

    Steps

    1. To your glass, add ¼ ice.
    2. Fill ¾ with Elba Island cold-brewed tea.
    3. Fill ¼ with Nexba Cucumber, Lime & Mint Tonic Water.
    4. Add 3-4 drops of organic Madagascan vanilla extract, then stir.
    5. Add 1 slice of fresh orange & fresh mint.
    6. Optional: If you only have/want Nexba Classic tonic water, add cucumber peel + a slice of lime.

    Enjoy!

    Lapsang Souchong

    All the Elements conquered in your glass

    It’s refreshingly chilled, yet the signature smoked tea of the Wuyi Mountains smoulders in your glass. The pine-smoked black invokes notes of vice, notably whiskey, cigar and a lychee relative with the Oriental appellation ‘Dragon Eye’. The sweetness of green apple plays like fine Baroque counterpoint to the visceral cold brew.

    The mixer is Nexba Classic Tonic Water, and don’t forget mint for a foresty touch. Though a Lapsang Souchong mocktail will cry out to its creator, “Make me into a whiskey cocktail!”, it stands strong as an uncomplicated sophistication that will start conversation by its rugged aroma alone.

    Ingredients

    Lapsang Souchong
    Nexba Classic Tonic Water
    Fresh organic green apple
    Fresh organic mint

    Steps

    1. To your glass, add ¼ ice.
    2. Fill ¾ with Lapsang Souchong cold-brewed tea.
    3. Fill ¼ with Nexba Classic Tonic Water.
    4. Add slices of fresh green apple & fresh mint.
    5. Optional: Add a few drops of organic Madagascan vanilla extract.

    Enjoy!

    Wildflower Immunity

    A halcyon tisane becomes aglow with quiet genius

    It turns out that our ‘seasonal assistant’ tisane also makes a sensational mocktail. A deep vermilion liquor is reminiscent of provincial pleasures, and it gifts a harmonic mix of sweetness and rustic charm, like a lovely neighbour who lends you useful things then forgets about them. Visually, it embodies a sanguine vitality, befitting the sanctuary of traditional immunity botanicals.

    The taste evokes peaceful sentiments of regeneration, with rosehip and red rose petals dotting a meadow of relaxing herbs and flowers. A cocktail shaker gets the most out of the blueberries, which lend even more colour, flavour and elixir to the final product.

    Ingredients

    Wildflower Immunity
    Nexba Rose Lemonade Kombucha
    Fresh or frozen organic blueberries
    Fresh organic rosemary

    Steps

    1. Add Wildflower Immunity cold-brewed tea + a handful of blueberries to a cocktail shaker & shake very well.
    2. To your glass, add ¼ ice.
    3. Pour the contents of the shaker (including blueberries) into your glass, ¾ full.
    4. Fill ¼ with Nexba Rose Lemonade Kombucha.
    5. Add a few extra blueberries + a sprig of rosemary.

    Enjoy!
