Whether sitting cozy by a fire on a snowy winter day, or sitting out on a front porch swing on a sultry summer afternoon looking out over green rolling hills, our Kentucky Bourbon tea suits many occasions. With hints of malt, soft barrel smoke, caramel, roasted apple, and vanilla, this tea echoes the nuance of a good bourbon without the boozy side effects. Also try this tea iced with mint infused simple syrup for a teetotaler’s perfect mint julep. Sip slowly and savor.

      I love the hint of smokiness in this rich, warm tea. It combines surprisingly well with the cocoa and fruit flavors that are predominate in this brew. I like to sip it slowly as a morning cup when I need a little extra comfort.

      Hated this! My partner said it smelled like tobacco and tasted worse. One of the only teas I've ever poured out.

      While not one I will rush to order, once I got past the smoke smell, this tea really wasn’t bad to drink. Had a sweet flavor profile underneath the smoke. Had hot with some sugar.

      The scent threw me off at first, as it has a very caramel-appely scent, not at all like a bourbon. But if you take your time, the bourbon does waft through. I may be biased as a scotch fan, but the lapsang souchong is in a perfect ratio here, to give just enough smokiness to give a bourbon effect, but not so much as to overpower the other flavours. A great rendition of bourbon. Perfect for summer nights by the campfire, or cool autumn evenings with cozy blankets. Also delightful cold brewed into iced tea and drank completely plain.

      This tea is interesting. Right off, it did smell like whiskey to me. It tasted ok, but no big wow.

      I was excited to give this a try, thinking maybe it would bring out the hidden Southern gentleman inside of me. Alas, it didn't, and I really didn't like this. The smokey note turned me off.

      I was disappointed with this when I tried it in the communitea box. Just not good.

      Smokey, and slightly sweet. Definitely not an everyday tea, but still really good.

      A nice smoky tea. If you give it about 5-8 minutes to cool down you get more of the caramel and vanilla tones to come through in the tea.
