Tea Cocktails and Oolong Braised Pork

Bringing the Good Stuff into Haste's kitchen for a cooking session.


I was kindly invited to visit Ian Haste from Haste's kitchen to talk about tea and help make some yummy recipes.

We enjoyed a River High braised pork with Jasmine rice - a fabulous and easy family lunch or dinner! For those of you who do not eat meat, this braising liquor could work excellently with silken tofu, mushrooms and spring onions! For all of the recipe ingredients please visit Haste's Kitchen.

To pair, I created a drink which I have named the Ruby Storm! It is a spiced rum cocktail featuring Ruby Black and it is really a special adult iced tea.

To finish the meal we made a stylish dessert using some Matcha which we paired with Osmanthus Oolong.
