Caterers can take advantage of the growing vogue for tea and predictions of a barbecue summer by offering customers gourmet blends for thirst-quenching iced teas.
Dan Bennett, head of food service at the London Tea Company says that the tea offering deserves the same level of attention as the coffee menu and highlights the company's White Tea; Elderflower and Apricot; Peppermint, Spearmint and Strawberry; and Green Tea Tropical flavours as ideal candidates for the "on the rocks" treatment.
The group offers a wide range of unusual organic blends - including Lavender Camomile; Vanilla Chai, Red Berries; Lemongrass, Ginger and Citrus Fruits; and Green Tea, Mango and Ginger, and Blackcurrant, Raspberry and Cinnamon - available in a variety of formats such as loose leaf, teabags and tisanes.
