drank Whisky White by DAVIDsTEA
1220 tasting notes

As we know by now, I am from The South. Not the south as in any state in the lower half of the US, but The South. Grew up in Tennessee and went to college in Kentucky. My area’s known for not letting the civil war die (I’ve done many reenactments in my time), good manners, chivalry, and, of course, whisky. So when I heard about this tea I had to try it. I love my whisky. I have three kinds in the house now, all made in Tennessee or Kentucky. (Can you guess which three?)

I made a jug of this for the fridge as soon as my wife got home with it. I adore this tea. Like she said, it tastes like whisky without the burn. I brewed it a little weak, but have no fear! This tea and I are in for a long, happy future. It is delicious and as tempting as with was to drop a little Jack or Jim in when I first tried it this morning, I resisted. However, it is well after five now…hmmm. Nah, I don’t want to mess up the smoothness with the burn of alcohol…tonight, anyway.

Also, I drank two cups of tea last night so this could be my 400th tasting note. Holy cow!

Thanks and I will definitely do so! This is a tea I think I will keep in stock year round.

I have to try this one! My mother used to make her own “cough medicine” with Jim, lemon, and sugar. Yeah, that’s just sweetened whisky Mom! How did I survive my childhood?

@Jenn – So did my mom! (Well, she used honey instead of sugar.) Either that, or if we couldn’t sleep, she would just give us a capful of straight whisky. :)

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
