Chefs and experts in the field of gastronomy have over the years taken notice of the unique qualities of Sparkling Tea. They have proven its great potential through various creative ways of including it on their menu – as low/non-alcoholic alternatives, as a way to complement their food or as innovative and exciting inputs to the overall dining experience.
This has been the vision of Copenhagen Sparkling Tea founder, Jacob Kocemba, since the very beginning. He wanted to create a range of Sparkling Teas that not only suit, but also elevate gastronomic occasions and pairings, satisfying a range of tastes, and leaving the guests with memorable experiences. The past year with covid-19, has sadly been especially tough on the restaurants and bars, and we are now more than ever craving these remarkable dining experiences. Nevertheless, brighter times are ahead of us, with the re-opening of restaurants and the possibility of enjoying a good glass of Sparkling Tea, alongside incredible and flavorful dishes.
To inspire you, we have selected three fantastic restaurants located in our hometown, Copenhagen, where you can be sure to find a vibrant atmosphere, enjoy a wonderful meal and our Sparkling Tea on the drinks menu.
1. Geranium – The Sophisticated Non-Alcoholic Alternative
Geranium is one of Denmark’s most acclaimed restaurants, and the very first in the country to receive 3 Michelin stars back in 2016, which they have succeeded in keeping ever since. At Geranium they have a very dynamic approach to creating gastronomic masterpieces and enticing taste combinations. The prime focus is on making each and every dish extraordinary and unique in its own way.

At Geranium they serve Sparkling Tea BLÅ and LYSERØD as non-alcoholic alternatives to wine to avoid any kind of compromise with taste and flavour.
“We want all our guests, who don’t desire alcohol to have an equally luxurious drinking experience as all our other guests. For example the tea blend of BLÅ gives sweet notes of flowers and a hint of tannins. The perfect aperitif!” – Mikael Båth, Restaurant Manager at Geranium.

2. Sticks ‘n’ Sushi – Tea and Sushi
Sticks ’n’ Sushi has become a well-respected restaurant chain both in and outside of Denmark due to the high level of taste and quality showcased in every dish created. Finding the perfect wine pairing for the Asian kitchen, and especially sushi can be a difficult task, which is why beer is often regarded as the preferred beverage pairing.
As an alternative, Sticks ‘n’ Sushi has added Sparkling Tea GRØN to its menu, which with its refreshing and mineral taste ties in beautifully with culinary delights from the Japanese cuisine.
The slight sweetness of GRØN works really well with the rice, while the crisp acidity balances out the fatness in the fish. Furthermore, the slight hint of umami extracted from the green teas harmonises beautifully with sushi. For many reasons Sparkling Tea GRØN, therefore complements and fulfills this dining experience perfectly.
