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!

Happy 400th! It looks like you made a great choice, too! :)

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?

QuiltGuppy

@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. :)

I don’t care for this tea, to be honest. I didn’t expect to, but I wanted to give it a go, since I didn’t expect to enjoy Read My Lips either. I’m just not a big fan of chocolate in teas.

Also, something in this tea gives me an intense headache…I think. I’ve had it twice now and twice I haven’t finished it due to headache, but I’m going to give it one more try before I say for certain.

drank Mango by Bentley's
1351 tasting notes

To try and put a positive spin on the sweltering heat yesterday, I decided to make sun tea with some of the bagged teas I’d set aside for just such a purpose. I’m not rating any of them, as they were a mix of two Stash decaf english breakfast, one bentley’s raspberry, and one bentley’s mango in a 2 L jug.

All in all, this was a failed experiment. The mango took over and it was gross. I did not like it at all. To me, there are two major flavors to mango, and one of them I cannot stand. Well, this just seemed to be nothing but the flavor I cannot stand.

I have four more of these in the Russian Roulette jar at the moment, but if anyone out there wants them, I’m more than happy to fish them out and send them on.

To be quite honest, I couldn’t taste this. At all. I could pick out the stash and the mango, but I detected absolutely no raspberry.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
