Profile: Black Sheep Coffee

by on July 26th, 2016

Black Sheep Coffee is a small chain of London-based coffee shops that has become a bit of a talking point since they first launched in 2013. Lead by four young and passionate founders, with an aim to break away from all things mundane and every day, their shops are known for their inviting atmosphere and DIY aesthetic.

 

This summer, Black Sheep has added an exciting range of iced teas to their menu. And, never one to miss an opportunity to hear what our customers are up to, I spoke with Mithalee, their head chef, to find out more.

Cold Brew Lemongrass

Canton Tea Club Week 98: Edgar introduces Lemongrass

I had planned this article a few weeks back when the weather was a little warmer so I apologise if it’s raining when you read this. I’ve been trying to drink a little less caffeine recently which is pretty hard when working at Canton HQ, and have been experimenting with cold brewing, especially using some our great herbal teas and blends.

Jasmine Iced Tea with Elderflower

by on July 25th, 2012

This month I have been experimenting with my own iced tea recipes as a fantastic way to enjoy tea during the (occasionally) hot British summer. I thought I’d share my favourite with you, it’s a delicious, refreshing and summery jasmine and elderflower iced tea. It’s so easy to make and perfect as an accompaniment to an alfresco lunch or to sip while reading a book in the sunshine. I recommend making it in the morning so it will be nice and cool for the afternoon.

4tsp of clear honey (I used Wildflower honey from Littleover Apiary)
Freshly squeezed lemon juice
Lots of ice

Iced tea on a hot day

by on May 23rd, 2010

Essential Iced Tea recipes.

Two of my favourites.

Bai Lin Gong Fu Black Tea: add a slice of fresh root ginger and a teaspoon of honey.

Pouchong Green Tea: a dash of apricot juice and a touch of honey - go easy on both.

Cool in the fridge and serve with ice.  A great way to get children drinking tea not juice.
