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.

I’m thinking moving this to ManTeas would be even better, but I didn’t want to risk the chance of that not happening- I ordered mine yesterday.

Jaime

It would be a good ManTeas blend. I’m already wanting another cup, but it’s all the way at my house. :-(

This stuff sounds awesome, and I concur with the ManTeas bid.

I’m actually working on some stiffer stuff for ManTeas. I’ve been having one heck of a time sourcing a worm to put in the pouches though. But have no fear, I will figure it out. :D

Cofftea

Frank, speaking of worms- I DID have a really good chili pepper tequila once…

Jaime

Oh, tequila…Jose is never kind to me the next morning, so I would be all for a good tequila blend.

But no worms, please. I’m terrified of worms.

52teas

Aw. Just one little bitty worm?

Jaime

Last week I woke up and went into the living room, turned on the light, and screamed bloody murder because I thought there was a worm in the middle of the floor.

It was thread.

Give me snakes, spiders, anything. But no worms.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
