Have your say

ETEAKET, in Frederick Street, which won last year’s Evening News-backed Local Business Accelerator competition, is lauching a new blend at a city-centre boutique.

The white tea blend has been created to compliment Peoneve, the latest fragrance from George Street’s Penhaligon’s.

Peoneve Tea has been created from rare Chinese white peony leaves, scented with delicate rose, blended with peony rose leaves, faded champagne jasmine flowers, dusky rose petals, petit rose buds and sunflowers.

The scent and tea will be launched next Saturday at the Penhaligon’s boutique, where there will be a 15 per cent discount for shoppers, tasters of the new tea and a Gin Peoneve cocktail.

• TO celebrate the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Purslane restaurant is offering a free glass of wine with every meal for the entire month of August.

With a chef who has worked with the likes of Marco Pierre White, you’re sure to be in good hands.
