Hats off to August Uncommon for really capturing the essence of bourbon in a tea. It was also smart to pair it with a smoky base since for me, personally, bourbon is quite smoky in itself. Anyone who knows me on here knows that I am most definitely not a fan of smoky notes in tea. Hell, I’m not even a fan of bourbon or scotch with any hint of smoke. It’s just not for me.
For that reason, I’m going to abstain from rating this. I can see bourbon or smoky tea lovers falling for this.
