Though some may feel a vinegar flavored tea is weird, that’s because they haven’t tried our Vinegar Black Tea. This tea presents a unique flavor but at the same time an all to familar taste of black tea.

Since I have been sick the only thing I could really taste is Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips so I thought I would give this one a whirl again. I can’t say as I can pick out the vinegar as much in this tea as in the chips but it will certainly do.

cody

That sounds… interesting. Haha. Never heard of such a thing.

amandajo

Hmm…I can see how this one would be good for eating with something, a tea side dish of sorts…or feeling as though you are having a snack :)

amandajo

lol, I said eating instead of drinking :P You get the picture. ;)

Jaime

There’s a vinegar tea?! Oh, my. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Steepster is a bad influence on my budget.

LiberTEAS

Jaime: I think I may have sent you a little bit of this in the package I sent to you. I’m not sure though. The tracking for the package says that it should be delivered today (well, it says “out for delivery”…) If I didn’t send a sampling to you, please let me know… and I’ll send some of that to you.

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Funny thing LiberTeas you had sent me some too but the tin that was labeled Vinegar Tea was actually empty. No biggy it would have been a bonus anyway. :)

Jaime

Oh, I’m all a-tingle with excitement!! You are awesome!!

LiberTEAS

Rachel -OMG! I am so sorry!!!

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

LiberTeas don’t even worry about it. Things happen. :)

Yep – this is another tea that I purchased just because it sounded weird. And yes, I am more than willing to taste a vinegar flavored tea before trying a peanut butter flavored one. I am a bit more fond of vinegar than of peanut butter…

This is a tea that really needs a “rinsing” before you steep. I brought a small amount of water to a boil, poured it over the leaves and then strained after just 10 seconds. This really improved the taste of the tea for me.

This is – surprisingly enough – a really good tea.

The aroma of the dry leaves is a lot like vinegar. Not as pungent-smelling as it would be if I were to open a bottle of vinegar, but it’s definitely vinegar. After brewing, the leaves take on a smoky aroma, as does the liquor.

But, as long as the leaves have been rinsed, the flavor does not present a strong smoky element. Don’t get me wrong, the smoky flavor is there, but it is quite in harmony with the other flavors of this cup.

Gotta try!

LiberTEAS

Cofftea, if you’d like, I’d be happy to send you a little sample of it. The smallest I was able to procure of this tea was an 8 ounce package, and even though I quite enjoy the tea, I would have to drink it every day to consume this much! Please feel free to send me a PM if you’re interested.

~lauren.

I live vicariously through brave people like you, LiberTEAS! Vinegar Black Tea, Oh my!

Doulton

I will have to try this one too. It sounds fascinating!

LiberTEAS

Anyone else who might be interested in trying this tea – I am happy to offer a sample to you as well. As I said, the smallest size that was available to order was 8 ounces – and this is much more than I need. Just shoot me a PM and I’ll be happy to send some out to you.

Stephanie

Vinegar Black—I’m so intrigued by this flavor. I love vinegary anything—especially on fish and chips!

AmazonV

i use vinegar on french fries, balsamic is best, nom nom

LiberTEAS

I love vinegar on french fries too, and on my fish… and on my green beans!

AmazonV

green beans hmmmm i think i may need to try that

LiberTEAS

It is something that I got started doing when I was very young… my gramma would drizzle a little vinegar on her green beans and I tried it that way, and now, I feel like something is missing when I eat them without vinegar.

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

I’m not brave enough. I do like vinegar. I’ve never had it on green bean though. I’ll have to try that. I got some green beans from the farmer’s market this morning too. Very unique sounding tea though.

Cofftea

LiberTEAS… the ONLY way I’ll eat green beans is if they are french cut canned (yes, they do taste different- but don’t ask me why) w/ apple cider vinegar and minced onion the way my own grandmother made them.

Backlogging from this morning; didn’t have a chance to write the note then. LiberTEAS sent me this in a swap…and I was so excited to try it! I love trying teas whose name/ingredients make you tilt your head to the side and say “huh?”.

I did a 10 second boiling water rinse, then steeped for 5 minutes. Didn’t use the One-Touch (only wanted one cup to go), so I’m not 100% absolutely certain as to the temp of the water during the steep, though it shouldn’t have been too much below boiling.

This tea is different, but really good. I really couldn’t taste the vinegar itself, but the black tea seemed stronger and crisper because of it. Slightly sour tasting, but really, really good. Yeah, my reviews are best written whilst actually sipping the tea, since I’m having troubles coming up with the right words to describe what I remember!! I saved the leaves to resteep tomorrow morning; can’t wait to see what a second steep produces!!

Thanks for sending me some of this to try, LiberTEAS! I really enjoyed it!

“I love trying teas whose name/ingredients make you tilt your head to the side and say “huh?”… DITTO!=D

Jaime

I was severely disappointed to find out the Tuna Melt tea was a prank. Not going to lie, I would have tried it in a heartbeat.

LiberTEAS

It was certainly a funny prank though. Gotta hand it to Frank! He’s clever!

Cofftea

Ditto Jaime.

First off, I think this smells delicious. All at once sweet, sour and biscuity.

I gave this a quick “rinse” before the actual steeping (as the directions recommended) but I think it may have rinsed away most of the actual flavor potency?

Now there’s just a hint of something like yummy vinegary biscuits—which I know may sound weird but I love vinegar! I love balsamic vinegar over strawberries. I love fish and chips doused with malt vinegar. And I love Sea Salt & Vinegar Kettle Chips!

Wouldn’t that be neat if there was a Salt & Vinegar Chip-flavored tea?

Anyways, this a mild black tea with a subtle “sweet and sour” flavor. Slightly malty. A bit drying on the lips.

I didn’t really get along with this tea. I will try it again with less tea and less steeping time. It just tasted more than a little acidulous and acerbic. I may revise my note after a second tasting.

I have a sample of this from Liber-Teas and I haven’t gotten the courage to try this one….

Doulton’s Shakespeare: A Tasting Note in 5 Acts
Act II scene 6

’Twas told me you were rough, and coy, and sullen,
And now I find report a very liar;
For thou art pleasant, gamesome, passing courteous,
But slow in speech, yet sweet as spring-time flowers.
The Taming of the Shrew, Act II scene 1

Amongst all the teas that Doulton sent me, this one both intrigued and repulsed me. It’s in this adorable little tin with some Victoriana decorations. It looks like it should be a floral tea and not something with vinegar in it. Finally today I got the nerve to pop open the tin and give it a go.

I could not for the life of me smell vinegar in the dry leaves. Maybe the tiniest hints in the back of my nose, but I don’t think I would’ve noticed it if I hadn’t known what was in this tea. I went ahead and did a 10 second rinse of the leaves under hot tap water.

Smell from the cup was black tea — pretty sure it’s Assam. Still couldn’t find the vinegar. Then came sip one: vinegar! Yup, there it is being quite shrewish to the back of my throat. Three sips in I was wondering if I could finish this cup so I did my “let’s let it sit over here for a minute or two and then return to it” technique. That did the trick! The vinegar receeded to a very mild level and then disappeared completely for the rest of the cup and the 2nd steep as well. It’s actually a rather pleasant smooth cup of black tea overall.

With all that in mind I dub this tea my Katherina (a.k.a. Kate) from Taming of the Shrew. It starts off all feisty and full of spirit and over time is broken down into submission. Horrible, but true. I think that even though there are some funny moments throughtout this play it should be considered a tragedy and not a comedy.

Ultimately this is a very interesting tea. I’m rather proud to be able to say that I’ve tried and enjoyed a Vinegar Black tea. Next time I shall try it without the pre-rinse to see if it keeps its unique character longer. Will I be rushing to purchase more when the tin runs out? No, but it’ll be fun while it lasts. NE

This is an interesting tea. The vinegar is not too strong, but still detectable. A pretty nice tea, but not one I see myself ordering more of.

QuiltGuppy

Does the vinegar make it sour? That’s an unusual tea!

ssajami

The vinegar does make it a bit sour, but not so much as to be unpleasant. Not a bad tea but definitely odd.
