A while ago, one of the local tea shops had a little class/preview session of the Tea Forte mixology set. You get 2-3 bags of each of their mixology teabags, two little steeping containers, and a recipe book.

I couldn’t resist. Booze + Tea? YAY!!!

My favorite of the set is the silk road chai – which I use to make white Russian chai drinks. Take the chai bag, steep in vodka, then mix with simple syrup and a milk product. Tres YUM.

Since I got this set, I’ve been experimenting with making a Earl Grey white Russian (and the testing process has been lovely) using other brands of tea. You can use any teabag to infuse in the liquor. And, if you go with Tea Forte, their teabags are strong enough to infuse multiple times (their literature leads you to think otherwise).

If you do not shun liquor, this may be something interesting to try. Their set is a nice way to start, but not necessary. Cheers!

The Wife Made some Earl Grey Tea liquor about 2 years ago since It is no longer made in England. It was Great to Experiment with the Mixes.
Happy Drinking (Mind your Responsibility)

Backlogging: Last night, I steeped this in chocolate vodka, then mixed the infused vodka with a mixture of warmed sweetened condensed milk and 1% milk. I added a little agave nectar to the cocktail, and frothed it up.

It was very yummy. I am not one who drinks very often (I think this may have been my first drink in quite some time actually), so I did find the flavor of the vodka to be a little overwhelming. But I could still taste the chocolate and chai flavors. I enjoyed it.
