Margaritas are renowned for their zesty and refreshing flavours, but have you ever considered infusing them with the delicate and complex nuances of tea? By adding tea into the mix, we can unlock a whole new realm of novel, gratifying tastes and create a truly extraordinary margarita experience. At Tavalon, we offer a range of premium tea blends that harmoniously complement the vibrant character of this iconic cocktail. Let's discover the key ingredients and the simple steps to craft this pleasing tea-infused margarita.


  • 1 cup Genmaicha, frozen into ice cubes
  • 1.5 oz tequila (blanco or reposado)
  • 3/4 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 oz agave syrup (adjust to taste)
  • 1 oz orange liqueur such Cointreau or Triple Sec
  • Mint and lime slices, for garnish
  • 2 tsp sugar


1. Begin by brewing your Genmaicha loose leaf. Steep 1-2 tablespoons of the tea in 8 ounces of hot water for about 3-4 minutes. Allow the brewed tea to cool and then fully freeze as ice cubes. 1 cup of Genmaicha is sufficient for Green Margarita.

2. Rub the lime wedge around the rim of your glass

3. Pour sugar onto a saucer, and dip and rotate the rim in the saucer of sugar, making sure to keep the sugar on the outside of the glass.

4. In a blender, combine the Genmaicha ice cubes, tequila, lime juice, Cointreau or Triple Sec, and simple syrup.

5. Blend on pulse setting until slushy.

6. Pour into your glass and garnish with a mint and lime slice.

7. Sip, savour, and enjoy the delightful fusion of the classic margarita and the tantalising notes of Tavalon's Japanese Genmaicha green tea.

Tavalon's tea-infused margarita brings a delightful twist to the classic cocktail, infusing it with the nuanced flavour of one of our citrusy, nutty green tea. This harmonious blend of citrusy tea notes, zesty lime, and tequila creates a truly memorable drinking experience. So, why not elevate your next gathering or quiet evening at home with this tea-infused cocktail?
