The Big Iced Teaser 3.0

Thursday 2nd May - 6:30pm - Good & Proper Tea, Leather Lane, London - RSVP here


Iced Tea season is nearly upon us and that means it’s time to don your brewer’s hat in an attempt to create the most delicious iced tea recipe in all of London/the world.

What is The Big Iced Teaser?

Once a year we invite you, our brewers, partners and fellow Tea People to put your creativity to the test in brewing, muddling, blending and garnishing a summer Iced Tea recipe and to join us on the evening of Thursday 2nd May to present your recipe to our lineup of all-star judges.

Associations of Iced Tea in the UK are still largely limited to the sugary syrups and tea extracts found in cans across the country, but we know Iced Tea can be so much more. On our mission to show people how good tea can be, when it’s done properly, we believe tea can be elevated to the most refreshing of summer drinks.

That’s where we need your help. We’d like you to turn your hand to recipe testing - taking the incredible variety and spectrum of flavour tea offers as your starting point and elevating it to something even more delicious.

On the Night

On the night of 2nd May, you will be required to share your iced tea with our panel of 4 industry-expert judges (TBA). You will need to make up a finished version of the iced tea drink, as well as to produce a larger batch for the audience to sample.

Last year, Michaela and Ott representing Taylor St Baristas took the judges by storm with their City of Eternal Spring Iced Tea recipe. And in 2017, the team at The Peanut Vendor brought their iced tea A-game with the Jass Fusion. We can’t wait to see what you brew up this time around.

Join us at 6:30pm for a few hours of unadulterated good tea fun, a chance to toast the incoming arrival of summer, and to have your say on who takes the crowning glory as iced tea champion.

We’ll have expert judges from the tea, coffee and cold drink industry, tea cocktails plus a fully stocked bar and food to keep you fuelled.

The winner will be announced at the end of the evening and there will also be a special prize awarded for the winner of a People’s Vote where the audience will elect their favourite, so don’t forget to bring everyone you know…

The clock starts NOW.
