Tea-based cold drinks have taken off recently, some of them really interesting innovations. Like this one for example, Native Infusions. The name really speaks to the product in this case: they are teas infused with native plants such as makomako.
I have something of a weakness for indigenous NZ food, so I’m always fascinated to see actual native plants in products. I admit that I wouldn’t have a clue what flavour, if any, the makomako adds to the drink, but it still feels good that it’s in there!
And the drink is pretty good too!
