Review and Tasting

Sampled on 31/01/2019

Appearance

Clear, deep tawny amber.

Aroma

Black tea leaves and delicate white pepper.

Taste

Bone dry with bitter black tea tannins and a strong black tea flavour with notes of Earl Grey.

Aftertaste

Black tea, dry bitter tannins and light white pepper spice.

Overall

Dry and bitter tea tannins scream for sugar in this tea infused vodka. Perhaps an interesting/useful cocktail ingredient but we can’t help thinking the tea in this vodka has been over infused so making it overly tannic.
