As I’ve said before, I don’t drink a lot of alcohol. There was a time though, that I drank my fair share (some might suggest it was more than my fair share), and one of my favorite beverages back then was Jack Daniels and Pepsi. So, I was excited to try this Whiskey & Cola Flavored Iced Tea from Southern Boy Teas.
When I opened the package, I could definitely smell the cola notes. They were strong. The whisky was not quite as apparent, but I could pick up on softer whisky notes.
The same proved true once the tea was brewed and chilled. I can certainly taste the cola aspect here but I found the whisky notes a little more difficult to discern from the first couple of sips. Once I had consumed about half a glass of this iced tea, though, I started to pick up on the flavor of the Whisky.
The black tea is smooth and mellow, and melds really well with these flavors. It’s as if the three flavors are made for each other. The aftertaste I can definitely taste the flavor of Whisky and Cola. This is actually tastier than I remember my Jack Daniels and Pepsi from my younger days.
Overall, this is tasty and refreshing. Not my favorite from SBT, but certainly one I’d enjoy now and again.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
