Endeavour Tea is a local Canberra business that combines the culinary and design skills of Matthew Petrucci and Jasmin Wong to share an appreciation of tea and a unique perspective on the modern tea experience. We are delighted to be welcoming Endeavour Tea to Handmade for the first time on 10 & 11 December at EPIC and have asked them our three producer questions:
1. What is your business all about?
We are a boutique tea company based in Canberra, Australia. Formed in 2016 by certified tea blender Matthew Petrucci, our launch collection includes cocktail- and dessert-inspired tea blends made with all natural loose leaf tea, fruit and herbs. Our mission is to help people embrace a modern tea experience with our specialty tea, starting with reimagined classics and favourites, which are dreamt up, created, tested and hand-blended in our Canberra studio.
2. Do you have a favourite Christmas Recipe?
Our Cherry Sour cocktail base recipe is a hit during Christmas. Full details can be found by following this link but here’s the recipe for one litre:
- 4 tsp (10g) Cherry Sour
- 300mL boiling water
- 700mL filtered water
- Mint leaves (optional)
- Steep Cherry Sour in 300mL boiling water for 10-12 minutes.
- Strain into a jug and add 700mL filtered water.
- Chill thoroughly. Add in mint leaves and a twist of citrus (optional) before serving. Delicious served icy cold or hot.
3. What will Santa be bringing you this year?
Hopefully Santa recognises us as one of the good ones! 😉 We hope he brings us more delicious, specialty teas to enjoy during our holidays and lots of rest after a busy and successful holiday season.
We can’t wait to meet you at Handmade and to taste your delicious blends. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us.
