Whiskey & Brandy Barrel Aged Teas
Steven Smith knows tea. Many of Smith Teamaker’s flavors aren’t like anything you’ll find elsewhere. That said, their Whiskey & Brandy Barrel Aged Teas take this to another level. Their No. 302 Yaupon Brandy is made using Yaupon leaves from Texas scented in apple brandy barrels from Stone Barn Brandyworks to impart the tea with complexities found in the spirit. The No. 628 Wuyi Whiskey tea, on the other hand, uses Westward Whiskey barrels to imbue the full leaf Zhen Shan Xiao Zhong smoked black tea with hints of oak, caramel, and whiskey. Both include 2 ounces of tea and come in hand-numbered black boxes that’ll be empty before you know it.
