Taster’s Review:

Another blogger that is more into lifestyle recommend this tea for me.  She purchases tea from them and thought I would enjoy them.  So of course I instantly checked them out and couldn’t believe the variety of tea they had.  This one instantly caught my eye and seems to be one of their best sellers.  I jumped on the chance to try this unique blend.

Brewed this up like a black tea with the help of my Breville One Touch and poured myself and Jason a cup.  He was more excited to try this one than me I think. Before I even took a sip of the tea you could definitely pick up the char that they hint at in the description.

Took a sip and we both smiled.  The tea is definitely bourbon inspired.  The vanilla and caramel notes are delicious with a mix of a woodsy malty flavor.  The char is a bit stronger than a hint like the description suggests and can be overpowering at times.  But overall this tea is unique and is one that demands your attention. Such a rich deep smooth flavor that is very reminiscent of the title of the tea.  I just adore those vanilla and caramel notes mixed with that char note.

I found that my cup was empty at no time and was wanting more.  Jason on the other hand wasn’t a big fan of the char aspect of the tea.  He adored the flavor of the tea-he just isn’t a fan of smoky teas.  I’m typically not either but I really like the combination of flavors.  This is one cuppa I could drink all night!

For my first experience with this company, I’m extremely pleased!
