China gets high on Scotch with a touch of green tea – Times of India

From The Times of India:

A bizarre but fashionable concoction of Scotch and green tea in an economically resurgent China has driven the sale of the finest whiskies of Scotland to an all-time high.

Traditional Scotch dealers didn’t ever imagine their drink would be put to such use, but they are not complaining, not after sales crossed the one-billion-pound mark in the first half of 2005 for the first time in eight years.

A spokesman of the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) said: “Personally, I wouldn’t touch it for all the tea in China but different people have different tastes and there’s a range of ways to enjoy Scotch whisky.”
