Yep – this is another tea that I purchased just because it sounded weird. And yes, I am more than willing to taste a vinegar flavored tea before trying a peanut butter flavored one. I am a bit more fond of vinegar than of peanut butter…

This is a tea that really needs a “rinsing” before you steep. I brought a small amount of water to a boil, poured it over the leaves and then strained after just 10 seconds. This really improved the taste of the tea for me.

This is – surprisingly enough – a really good tea.

The aroma of the dry leaves is a lot like vinegar. Not as pungent-smelling as it would be if I were to open a bottle of vinegar, but it’s definitely vinegar. After brewing, the leaves take on a smoky aroma, as does the liquor.

But, as long as the leaves have been rinsed, the flavor does not present a strong smoky element. Don’t get me wrong, the smoky flavor is there, but it is quite in harmony with the other flavors of this cup.

Gotta try!

Cofftea, if you’d like, I’d be happy to send you a little sample of it. The smallest I was able to procure of this tea was an 8 ounce package, and even though I quite enjoy the tea, I would have to drink it every day to consume this much! Please feel free to send me a PM if you’re interested.

I live vicariously through brave people like you, LiberTEAS! Vinegar Black Tea, Oh my!

Doulton

I will have to try this one too. It sounds fascinating!

LiberTEAS

Anyone else who might be interested in trying this tea – I am happy to offer a sample to you as well. As I said, the smallest size that was available to order was 8 ounces – and this is much more than I need. Just shoot me a PM and I’ll be happy to send some out to you.

Vinegar Black—I’m so intrigued by this flavor. I love vinegary anything—especially on fish and chips!

i use vinegar on french fries, balsamic is best, nom nom

LiberTEAS

I love vinegar on french fries too, and on my fish… and on my green beans!

AmazonV

green beans hmmmm i think i may need to try that

LiberTEAS

It is something that I got started doing when I was very young… my gramma would drizzle a little vinegar on her green beans and I tried it that way, and now, I feel like something is missing when I eat them without vinegar.

I’m not brave enough. I do like vinegar. I’ve never had it on green bean though. I’ll have to try that. I got some green beans from the farmer’s market this morning too. Very unique sounding tea though.

LiberTEAS… the ONLY way I’ll eat green beans is if they are french cut canned (yes, they do taste different- but don’t ask me why) w/ apple cider vinegar and minced onion the way my own grandmother made them.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
