Tea can do that...

Today, tea has become the second most consumed beverage in the world with hundreds of brands and flavours available. Yet it’s only been in recent decades that researchers have begun to look at the effects this simple beverage can have on our mood and brain function.

Tea Blogger, Nicole loves Tea Pets

What are tea pets, you ask?  In the world of small tea pot brewing, they sit on the tea table and keep you company.  There are many different types with the money frog (coins in the mouth) most favoured for good luck.  During the sharing of tea, excess tea is poured over the tea pet so no tea is ever wasted.  They are fun, conversation starters and part of the tea experience. Crossing the ocean, we chat with Nicole Wilson who has been writing about her love of the leaf since 2008.

Why tea is one of the hottest ingredients in low and no cocktails

The proof that the humble tea plant is a superstar ingredient can be seen in its use by bartenders and mixologists around the world. Whilst tea has a long history on the back bar it is experiencing a spectacular rise in no and low ABV (alcohol-by-volume) drink lists.

Socialising Sober: Alcohol vs Tea

There’s a common misconception that if you’re not drinking alcohol, you’re not having fun. Whoever thought to spread this rumour did a good job, but it’s definitely not the case and people are beginning to realise that. There is a not-so-new trend that’s making its way into the mainstream and that is non-alcoholic drinks. What makes this news even better is the significant improvement in the availability, quality and variety of non-alcoholic beverages.  So how do these alcohol-free variations fit into our society?

How much Sugar, Calories & Alcohol in your drinks?

We’ve heard it before; you are what you eat. Everything should be done in moderation - but how often do you check the sugar, calorie or alcohol content of your favourite food and beverages?  Most importantly, do you know how much of these ingredients you should be consuming and the effects they can have on your health if you have too much?  Just because it says sugar-free, low-fat or alcohol-free - doesn’t mean it’s good for you, which is why it’s so important to read the label.

Mico Monkey returns with GOLD 🏅

We think our cheeky monkey, MICO, star of East Forged's Black Tea & Yuzu deserves his own blog post after returning from the DB & SB Autumn Blind Tasting competition, run by UK-based publications The Drinks Business and The Spirits Business with a gold medal.

A tea drink that shows there is more to social drinking than alcohol

Elevating the tea experience is a top priority for our East Forged Co-founders Kym and Tania.  They will jump on any opportunity to talk, write and drink tea.  To say they are passionate about tea is an understatement because between them they have three tea companies!  They compete in competitions, travel to origin and are actively involved in the industry here and internationally.  They love to promote the value of tea as an ingredient and the impact it has for the beverage industry.
