Tasty Alternatives to Alcohol - Wildlane Tea's Suggestions

Although Wildlane Tea’s premium brews are perfect in alcoholic cocktails, it is noted that many people are moving towards alternatives to alcohol. Loose leaf tea blends work just as well when mixed with soft drinks (as well as on their own) by bringing the same aromas, flavours and inspiring warmth. Here are some healthy alternatives to alcohol that you can enjoy with your loose leaf tea:

Sparkling and flavoured water - sparkling water is a great way to stay hydrated and refreshed. You can add a splash of juice or fruit to make it more flavourful.

Fruit juice - fruit juice is a good source of vitamins and minerals.

Soda - there are now many low-sugar and sugar-free sodas available.

Mocktails - mocktails are cocktails that do not contain alcohol. They can be made with a variety of ingredients, such as fruit juice, soda, and syrup.

Low or no alcohol alternatives to spirits – many alcoholic drinks have alcohol-free options and carry just as much flavour and zest.


Wildlane Tea’s herbal infusions make for a healthy and delicious addition to your cocktails, mocktails and everyday hydration. Explore our range of organic teas and expand your drinking experience!
