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.
