Tropical Delights: Tiki Tea Infusions and Rum Blends

Once you start experimenting with Wildlane Tea’s mix of fruity, herbal and spiced loose leaf tea flavours, you will enter a world of exotic delights. The tiki style of cocktails combine the bright flavours of tropical regions and the richness of rum to create quintessential drinks for any playful mood or occasion.

The Beauty of Rum

Rum is a very adaptable spirit that can be sipped in a cocktail, savoured as a spiced alcoholic beverage, or mixed with complementary or opposing ingredients. This is true whether you choose light-bodied or fuller-flavoured rum. Light or dark rum can be the ideal addition for any event, as a cocktail ingredient or on its own. Combining your favourite rum with one of Wildlane Tea's high-end loose leaf tea blends is a lovely way to unwind, socialise and free your mind.

The distinctive flavour of rum blends nicely with foods like pineapple, lemon, coconut, oranges and spices. Traditionally a spirit for warmer days and celebrations, rum is often linked to places such as Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Jamaica. All rum varieties, whether dark, light, coconut-flavoured, or spiced, make for an exotic delight, especially when paired with superb botanical Wildlane Tea’s.
