Review and Tasting
Sampled on 31/01/2019
Clear, deep tawny amber.
Black tea leaves and delicate white pepper.
Bone dry with bitter black tea tannins and a strong black tea flavour with notes of Earl Grey.
Black tea, dry bitter tannins and light white pepper spice.
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.
