It’s cocktail time at Tell CamelliaHong Kong

It’s time for tea at Hong Kong’s coolest new cocktail bar, except the type of beverages being brewed at Tell Camellia pack slightly more of a punch than your average cup of Earl Grey. This tea-meets-booze venture is the brainchild of master mixologists Gagan Gurung and Sandeep Hathiramani, who named the bar after the tea-producing Camellia sinensis plant.

The ‘teatails’ (clever, right?) are named after the origin of the tea leaves used, and are a blend of flavours and ingredients that really shouldn’t work but somehow do. A standout is the Japan, which has been concocted using shochu, redistilled matcha, pumpkin seeds, mint, fermented soybean, seaweed and plankton sprinkles, and is served in a floating tea service. Levitating cocktails? Count us in.
