When you visit the High Tatras and their “outlaw Tatra chalets”, you will be offered as an aperitif the local specialty: hot tea made from Tatra herbs drenched in concentrated alcohol. For many years, we had been thinking about the idea of bringing this specialty to every home and business premises in Slovakia as a consumer product.
The time for this idea’s fruition came in 2003, when TATRATEA started to be produced. After one year of development, we introduced our TATRATEA 52% Original to the market at the beginning of 2004. Consumers have grown so fond of it that it is now becoming the Slovak national drink.
Describing the taste and aroma of TATRATEA would mean denying you the enjoyment of tasting it yourself. It is possible to serve it chilled or with ice. The drink will show you its “true face” when you pour 150 ml of boiling water or hot tea over 50 ml of TATRATEA. Finally, it is a rewarding base for mixed drinks, whether you use cola, tonic, Sprite or even tea with a slice of lemon. Just allow your imagination to run wild.
Maybe you have also witnessed a mock “raid by outlaws” in High Tatra mountain cottages. Basking in the Tatra locals’ hospitality, surrounded by traditional mountain air, you were taking in the unforgettable atmosphere sitting by the fire. Handsome young men in Goral felt hats offered you a strong beverage, the memory of which has remained with you to this day.
It was the first time you tasted TATRATEA.
