It is cold, so why not warm up with a fun tea based cocktail. Created by based Christopher Coccagna a Certified Tea Specialist from the Specialty Tea Institute of America! In 2010, he began his journey of crafting and blending artisan teas and tisanes which led to the formation of T-WE TEA. His company aims to spread its message of finding beauty in all natural, flavor-additive free tea. Coccagna’s goal is to push the envelope of the contemporary American tea concept. He created this drink for the Got Milk folks. (officially the California Milk Advisory Board).
