I made it a point this morning to get up early and make the trek to Smith Teamaker’s brick-n-mortar shop to pick up some of this. I thought it’d be a perfect gift for my dad. Unfortunately, they were sold out of it. Luckily, they had just enough left for me to sample a pot. The black tea base was a Nuwara Eliya Ceylon given a couple months rest in a white oak whiskey barrel. The result was a bright amber liquor with a woody/smokey foretaste, a floral middle, and a winy/whiskey-like aftertaste; toasty but not bitey. This stuff is habit-forming.

Oh. I really shouldn’t type the thoughts that came into my mind just reading the name of this.

Should I even wager a guess?

Jaime

I daresay you wouldn’t get it exactly…but you’d certainly get the general idea. Will this be available on their website, do you know? It’s not there now (I assume because they’re out of it).

Geoffrey Norman

It was a limited edition item. Only available on walk-in.

A little bit of my soul just died.

Bio

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
