Absolut Wild Tea is said to combine the “dark tones and richness” of black oolong tea and the “delicate character” of Nordic white elderflower with a “smooth, mellow” vodka base.
The bottle is embossed with a black and gold tea leaf design.
The latest Absolut flavour joins a range that now numbers nine, following the launch of Mango and Berri Acai last year.
Ian Peart, on-trade channel director for spirits at Pernod Ricard UK, told SLTN the latest variant will be available in top-end bars, with the Absolut Wild Tea Negroni and the Absolut Wild Smokey Tea promoted as suggested serves.
“We’re continuing to invest in pioneering flavours,” he said.
“Globally, a lot of top-end bartenders are working with infusions and a lot of them are infusing vodka with tea so we’re capitalising on that trend.
“The flavours can be used to make great-tasting drinks and cocktails.”
The launch of Wild Tea comes as Absolut launches Absolut Elyx – a single-batch vodka – in five of London’s top cocktail bars.
Elyx, which is said to be produced in a hand-operated still dating from 1929, will be rolled out to top-end bars across the UK from next month.
