Leaf Type: White
Where to Buy: David’s Tea
Love unwinding with a glass of whisky after a long work day? Here’s a version you can sip at the office all day long. With white Bai Mu Dan, sweet pieces of peach, macadamia nuts, and a big hit of smoky whisky flavour, this rich blend might just replace the bottle of bourbon you have stashed in the back of your desk. Of course, spiking it with an extra splash of whisky wouldn’t hurt.
I am not a big fan of liquor in general, but, I do find myself rather fascinated with liquor flavored teas like this Whisky White Tea from David’s Tea.
The scent of the brewed tea has a very strong whisky scent and the flavor is remarkably smooth. Overall, it’s a very delicate cuppa, from the soft Bai Mu Dan base, to the hint of whisky flavor, and a whisper of peach and sweet nutty undertones. I like that I can taste each of these components distinctly, and yet everything is very light and refreshing and nicely balanced.
This is really delicious served hot or on the rocks. This is an excellent way to unwind after a hard day at work … even while you’re still at work!

How does it hold up in comparison to Smith’s Whiskey Barrel Black?
It’s been a while since I’ve had the Whiskey Barrel… perhaps I will have a cup today and compare.
