Award winning Harry Brompton’s London Alcoholic Ice Tea now available in Boston

"Harry's London Alcoholic Ice Tea is the ideal option for discerning drinkers looking for a premium, all-natural, ethically sourced, and credible alternative to craft beer or cider"

Almost two hundred and fifty years since a rather rowdy bunch of colonial upstarts threw some perfectly good British teas in a rather frosty Boston Harbour, the British have returned, and they have brought more Tea: Harry Brompton’s London Alcoholic Ice Tea!

This time around the tea is refreshingly served ice cold and is more spirited than the Queen Mother and Churchill having a “knees up” with the Rolling Stones. So we hope the US will take to this tea better than the last time!

Following years working in the US, entrepreneur Ian O’Donohue and his Southern wife headed back to his home in London, where he became obsessed with developing a British style Ice Tea that would be the equal of the great drinks he’d tried during visits to his wife’s Georgia home.

A lot of time and effort went into tasting fine teas from around the world before settling on a robust blend of Kenyan Black Tea from great rift valley – renowned for its fertile soil and exceptional growing conditions that delivered a full flavoured ice tea.

Two years later, in 2014, having won a listing in the prestigious UK retail chain Waitrose (Grocer to the Queen no less), Ian quit his job as an Oil Broker to become a full time Ice Tea maker. Following a UK wide launch, Harry Brompton’s winning combination of British and American culture, quickly found a place in both hearts and refrigerators.

Embracing the US Ice Tea tradition and introducing British Tea making know how, the result is the world’s first premium Alcoholic Ice Tea. Available in two flavours, a deliciously refreshing Lemon Citrus and perfectly balanced Peach, Harry Brompton’s is imported straight from the UK and presented in a European style 330ml bottle and some rather splendid 4 packs.

Having recently landed in the US, Harry's Alcoholic London Ice Tea is the ideal option for discerning drinkers looking for a premium, all-natural, ethically sourced, and credible alternative to craft beer or cider. It’s already available in Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Massachusetts and New Jersey with more states coming on all the time.

Harry Brompton’s alcoholic Ice Tea will be making a special appearance at this year’s Boston Tea Party celebration from the 16th of December for the 244th anniversary. What better way to let bygones be bygones than to embrace the delicious and expertly blended alcoholic brew. You can try it for yourself at the promotional tasting event planned at XYZ from 5pm to 9pm for a free sample of both delicious flavours. [See https://gottea2017.brownpapertickets.com for details]

One thing is for sure, it would be a crying shame to tip this delicious brew into the harbour.
