311 Tasting Notes
When you open up the tea canister (or bag), the fragrant spices jump at you. The flavors really come out when you brew it as well. It’s not a black tea with mind flavoring, the cinnamon and nutmeg really come out.
I’d recommend a fine mesh infuser or tea bags, because there are small bits of spice that can sneak out.
Now that it’s starting to get cooler, I’ve been drinking a lot of this tea. It smells like a campfire. Which brings back good memories and adds a lot of unique flavor to this tea.
Speaking of flavor, because of the strong smoky flavor, you either love it or hate it.
Edit: Looking back on this tea, it’s not one of my favourite LS.
My husband really liked how the canister of this smelled, so we bought a bag. I’m not really crazy about any teas with sugar already added. If the tea needs sugar, I’d rather just add it in later.
We mostly drink this iced. When you brew it hot it’s more like hot cider with added fruity flavor. I can’t say that the flavor is bad, it’s just not something I go crazy for. It’s not an awful tea, but I’m not impressed enough to buy another bag.
Lately this has been my favorite (flavored) black tea to drink. The smell isn’t overpowering, and neither is the flavor once you brew it.
It goes down really smooth, none of the flavors will knock your socks off. The vanilla and bourbon work really well together, even though the bourbon flavoring is pretty subtle.
