Mrs Simkins’ Iced Green Tea Mini Loaf Cakes

 

Mini Green Tea Loaves 2Clipper’s range of green teas work brilliantly in these unusual little cakes. The cakes are light and moist, not too sweet, and, come complete with a useful amount of antioxidants from the tea, which happily, are able to survive the baking process: just the thing for the dark days of January!

Clipper’s green tea with lemon or strawberry, matched with lemon zest or freeze-dried strawberry pieces respectively, work particularly well, but you could experiment with some of the other varieties in the range. Choose from: ginseng and raspberry, ginkgo biloba and blackcurrant, aloe vera and citrus or nettle and peppermint.

The cakes are baked in dinky little loaf tins, the kind that come in packs of 6 but if you don’t have any, you could bake them as muffins in a muffin tin, with or without paper cases.  Serve with a big cup of matching Clipper green tea!

Indian Tonic 200ml (with 4 pack) med res

A little fizz always goes down nicely, and our friends at Fever-Tree have created some delicious tonics worthy of the very best gins, and in doing so have re-invigorated that most quintessential British cocktail – the G&T!

Disappointed by the tonics available on the mass market,  founders Charles Rolls and Tim Warrillow began creating mixers using natural and fresh ingredients. The brand name was chosen as ‘fever tree’, the colloquial name for the cinchona tree, the bark of which produces quinine, is the essential bitterness in tonic water.
