Alcohol and Tea: Got Beef and Discount Supermarket, Whitchurch Road

Got Beef- Harry Brompton’s London Ice Tea

I have wanted to try Harry Brompton’s alcoholic ice tea for a while so I was really pleased to come across some at Got Beef.

Got Beef has a great selection of alcoholic drinks and the alcoholic ice tea is a great addition as it is really refreshing to have alongside a burger. It is made with ‘the finest ethically sourced Kenyan black teas, crisp craft distilled grain spirit and infused with natural citrus’. The black teas used have a lovely sweetness about them and there is the perfect amount of citrus to compliment the flavour of the tea without overpowering it. The ice tea is lightly sparking which I think works really well. It makes the drink really refreshing and I think it makes the flavours come through well. I had my Harry Brompton’s with a delicious Uni burger- a burger with Chinese inspired flavours. I opted for the sweet potato fries as my side which were lovely and crispy on the outside but I felt they could have been done for just a touch longer on the inside. I’ve been to Got Beef a few times since it found it’s permanent home and I love it… especially now I am able to have a tea with my burger!

Discount Supermarket- High Tea IPA

On the way home I popped into Discount Supermarket which is a few doors down from Got Beef. Discount Supermarket has a fantastic selection of alcohol and I usually find something new on every visit… but never tea related. However, on this visit I came across a bottle of tea flavoured beer!

High Tea is an IPA from Roosters which has been brewed with jasmine green tea from Taylor’s of Harrogate. I am not a lover of beer but I had to get my husband to try it as it was the only one on the shelf and is a limited edition. I had a little sip and I found the floral flavour of the jasmine to be really strong which complimented the bitterness of the beer well. I couldn’t taste any green tea though. I think if you like beer, tea and jasmine then it is a must try! It is something very unusual which is why I couldn’t just leave it on the shelf.

You can find Harry Brompton’s in most Waitrose and Sainsbury’s stores, or from Ocado online, if you want to try it at home.
