Kentucky Bourbon @adagioteas #teaadventcalendar #adventcalendar2021

Today’s tea from my Tea Advent Calendar is Kentucky Bourbon. This looks fantastic, especially since I like whiskey.

The tea contains black tee, keemun concerto tea, rose hips, cocoa nibs, lapsang souchong tea, whiskey flavor, blue cornflowers, natural candy apple flavor, and natural vanilla flavor. It actually did have that smokey, woody whiskey smell when I opened the packet, but it also smelled sweet.

I steeped it for 3 minutes in 8 ounces of 212ºF hot water.

Unsweetened, I could really smell the whiskey scent but without the alcohol! But it didn’t taste like much beyond black tea with whiskey. So I added almond milk and sugar, and I could taste more of the spices. It reminded me faintly of mulled apple cider, but not as sweet or spicy, mixed with the warm black tea flavor, and with a shot of whiskey in it. It was a really nice cup of tea, although I felt like drinking it after lunch was a bit early in the day. :)
