A Spicy Rum Sour Twist on the Classic Earl Grey Black Tea!

Another obvious choice for this month’s theme – I mean, I just HAD to craft a tea for the Mad Hatter, right? For this tea, I combined the flavor profiles of a Spicy Rum Sour cocktail with a cup of Classic Earl Grey.

I really love how this tea came out. The flavors of a spicy rum sour (ginger, rum & lemon) and the bergamot from the Earl Grey work together very harmoniously. The bergamot is smooth from the rum. The lemon isn’t too tart, the ginger isn’t too peppery. It’s really just a very pleasant cup to sip – so, so smooth and tasty!

For this blend, I started with an organic blend of Assam, Keemun & Ceylon teas. Then I added cold-pressed oil of bergamot, some lemon myrtle, lemons, ginger root & a touch of rum essence (Don’t worry, it’s alcohol free!)

Having taste tested this as both a hot tea and an iced tea, I will say that I do prefer it as an iced tea – but that opinion could be affected by the fact that we’ve been experiencing some rather warm weather and I tend to just prefer my tea iced when the temperatures reach the 80s and higher . . . so I’ll just say that it’s a winner whichever way you choose to serve it.

This delightful addition to our Mad Tea Party tea collection is organic, alcohol-free, allergen-free, gluten-free & VEGAN!

organic ingredients: black teas, cold-pressed oil of bergamot, lemon myrtle, ginger root, lemons & natural flavors

Thanks to amandastory516 for giving me the chance to try this flavor that I missed! The strongest flavor seems to be the earthy lemon. I would have preferred more bergamot, but it does make an interesting flavor combination. I decided to have it without milk because I wanted to make sure I could taste all the delicate floral flavors. I enjoy the black base that’s used here, and though this isn’t one I’d be in a hurry to have again, it actually is pretty fresh-tasting and good. I wish I could have tasted some of the rum flavor though.

This tea is bergamot-forward, but the lemon myrtle and ginger are right behind! I think this is the first tea I’ve had with bergamot that doesn’t quite seem like an earl grey to me, not that there’s anything wrong with earl grey. It’s a different blend entirely, and I like it. It’s perfect for enjoying with friends who are a bit mad.

It is a very-very well balanced tea: bergamot, ginger, and lemon complement each other very well. But it also a very forgettable and unremarkable drink and I do not know why. Maybe the tea base should be more defined and assertive, or maybe it was designed to be taken with milk and sugar (and I always drink my tea straight).

In any case, despite the obvious skill and thought that went into creating this blend it did not click with me.

I cold-brewed this one overnight last night – and as a cold-brew, this one positively shines! Absolutely delightful to drink. The bergamot mellows and melds with the lemon to offer a bright, citrus-y flavor that’s pleasantly tart but not sour – the rum and the subtle kick of ginger softens the sour notes – to create a very pleasant flavor.

Really nice.

I’m looking forward to going through all your notes/tea descriptions to find the ones best suited to cold-brewing/icing! I need some fresh variety in my beverages before summer’s over!

I like this one hot – but it is truly a different level kind of tea when it’s cold-brewed. I cold-brewed it again last night to enjoy today and that is the way I will brew this one from now on – it’s just so amazing cold-brewed.
