The Craft Tea Cat
As well as our original drinks range; The Bucha Dog, we also have a 2nd range called The Craft Tea Cat. The Craft Tea Cat is our Sparkling Tea range which is very popular in Northern Ireland & Ireland and which is currently growing in Great Britain. For more information on each of our products in the Craft Tea Cat range, check out. The popularity of Sparkling Tea has really increased in the last few years and here at Craft Tea Brew Co, we have a great selection of Sparkling Teas such as ‘Living on the Hedge’ which is a highly motivated floral tea made from hand foraged botanicals such as nettles, brambles and elderflower.
If we follow such strict production principles, where do our flavours and other magic come from. From lots of places. We can vary the tea, the sugar (see below), the starter, the brewing conditions, the conditioning (currently we are loving experimenting with some lovely wine making practices). We can be creative with our tea infusions and here we add other carefully selected botanicals in our brews. Also quite uniquely to us, one of the ways we vary our energy for the SCOBY is by substituting beet sugar for fruit sugar. We don’t use juice at the end of the process. We never back sweeten or flavour with juices, instead we bring in sugar from fruits, usually as concentrated juice as energy sources for the SCOBY. While this gives some practical difficulties we think it’s worth it to be true to the brewing principles. As a nice side-effect we get the essence of the flavour from the sugar source. Sweet!
