If I’m going to have a mixed drink, it’s most likely going to be a whiskey sour. When Frank hinted that his next blend would rival the wine-flavored teas, I wished and wished and hoped that it would be a whiskey sour tea.
Yes, happy Jaime happily bought two pouches.
The Golden Yunnan base is delicious; bold, and not overpowered by the flavorings. As for the flavorings, yes, it tastes like a whiskey sour. Good, full whiskey flavor, just a hint (more like a whisper) of cherry, and somehow Frank managed to make this taste like there’s actual sweet & sour mixer blended in. It’s not as strong on the “sour” part as I prefer…then again, if this were the lock-your-jaw sour that I prefer, very few others would like it…or even make it past the first sip.
Frank, you’re a tea-blending genius. I firmly believe that this should be in the permanent collection, and that you should enter it into the North American Tea competition next year.
