A Prosecco-style tea drink to be enjoyed from a champagne flute is the brainchild of two former Essex University graduates.

Francis Oyewole, 24, and Sultan Bin Khaled, 25, are behind Green Lady – the UK’s first sparkling tea for teetotallers.

Its simple recipe is Francis’s own green tea concoction from the Himalayan mountains of Darjeeling, India.

The next stage is raising £26,000 to support the launch of a new flavour, working with Tesco’s BackIt campaign for small businesses. Their online fundraising page launches on October 7 and will have six weeks to reach its target.
