Another blogger that is more into lifestyle recommend this tea for me. She purchases tea from them and thought I would enjoy them. So of course I instantly checked them out and couldn’t believe the variety of tea they had. This one instantly caught my eye and seems to be one of their best sellers. I jumped on the chance to try this unique blend.
Brewed this up like a black tea with the help of my Breville One Touch and poured myself and Jason a cup. He was more excited to try this one than me I think. Before I even took a sip of the tea you could definitely pick up the char that they hint at in the description.
Took a sip and we both smiled. The tea is definitely bourbon inspired. The vanilla and caramel notes are delicious with a mix of a woodsy malty flavor. The char is a bit stronger than a hint like the description suggests and can be overpowering at times. But overall this tea is unique and is one that demands your attention. Such a rich deep smooth flavor that is very reminiscent of the title of the tea. I just adore those vanilla and caramel notes mixed with that char note.
I found that my cup was empty at no time and was wanting more. Jason on the other hand wasn’t a big fan of the char aspect of the tea. He adored the flavor of the tea-he just isn’t a fan of smoky teas. I’m typically not either but I really like the combination of flavors. This is one cuppa I could drink all night!
For my first experience with this company, I’m extremely pleased!
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
