As a chef, cocktail enthusiast, and Beverage Innovation Sr. Technologist here in the Dunkin’ Culinary Test Kitchen, I love creating exciting, new drinks. As it just so happens to be National Hot Tea Month, I decided to have some fun with our hot tea flavors. Our new, full leaf teas are served in high-quality pyramid tea sachets, making them the perfect base for hot toddy cocktails or mocktails.
