Celebrate National Iced Tea Day with this super refreshing gin tea party punch!

Tea is probably the most British beverage there is… other than gin, of course! When porcelain first arrived on our shores from China, it paired perfectly with another import – tea! - and porcelain’s popularity boomed as teapots and teacups became a central feature of British drawing rooms.
This month’s Nelson gin is from Stoke-on-Trent which played a big part in porcelain’s prevalence in the UK, so a big pot of ginny tea party punch is the perfect pairing!

There is a whole host of herbal and fruit teas out there so why not experiment with blackcurrant, lemon, strawberry and elderflower teas? Don’t forget to swap out the garnish!
