Darjeeling summer punch

12 Jun

Incredibly sweet, refreshing and uplifting and brimming with exotic flavour, this summer punch will be the star of any garden party.

We first spotted this recipe on the Telegraph online and were really intrigued about it. Mixing Darjeeling tea with ginger and mint sounded brilliant! Could it work? We currently stock three different types of Darjeeling and we instantly thought of using Darjeeling Afternoon, a refreshing blend from the Makaibari gardens. Holly and Hannah at Lahloo Pantry tried a few different variations on the original and this is our absolute favourite. We love it so much that it’s become part of the summer tea menu at Lahloo Pantry! Make it at home and serve it to your guests for a sophisticated, alcohol-free, drink.


  • Lahloo Darjeeling Afternoon
  • Ginger beer
  • Orange juice
  • Fresh mint
  • Slice of orange

Cold infuse Darjeeling Afternoon (we use 4g tea per litre of water) overnight. Mix 3/4 glass of cold infused Darjeeling with a splash of ginger beer and a splash of orange juice. Serve with a sprig of mint, a slice of orange and crushed ice.
