Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends...it's Friday...that means one thing at Tea With Me and Friends towers....yes it's time for another tea review!
This week we thought we'd share something a little bit different...a Tey Latte® from MASSIS Tea, a new tea company. Founders Hovig Yardim and Maral Keoshgerian have used their scientific backgrounds to produce a totally new tea drink.
Using tea leaves, they have created a blend that can be pulled through a conventional espresso machine to create a full-bodied and shot of Tey®, they use this in various drinks including their Tey Latte®.
Sounds weird doesn't it....but we have tried this new way of drinking tea and it's actually rather good!
We met Hovig from MASSIS Tea at Taste of London recently, who told us all about this new way of enjoying tea. When we arrived we realised how well Lorna matched MASSIS Tea....
Hovig is friendly and very passionate about tea, he was keen to tell us all about MASSIS Tea. He explained that they have balanced the aroma and colour of their own secret blend of loose leaf teas with the texture of steamed milk to produce a tea experience like no other.
Using their own unique method, they pull a very strong “shot” of tea, creating something similar to an espresso, but made with tea instead of coffee. They pour over steamed milk to create a refreshing drink with a velvety finish. They offer a variety of flavours including Biscuity Butterscotch®, Gingerbread Hug®, HazelnuTey® and Caribbean Coconut.
I tried a Gingerbread Hug®.....
The name really does describe this drink well....it's warm and comforting....just like a hug! Not too sweet or milky, it's a very smooth drink. Probably not for the purist tea drinkers out there, but if you fancy something a little bit different they are worth a try!
You can currently find MASSIS Tea at a variety of places in London, take a peek at their website to see the locations.
If you've already tried a MASSIS tea we'd love to hear what you thought.
Thank you to Hovig for sharing MASSIS tea with us!
Thank you for popping by today,
Rachel & Lorna
