Old Fashioned

$11.95

Classics are classics for a reason. Classics that make a comeback and are just as hip as they are historic are necessarily noteworthy. Take the trusty Old Fashioned; it revels in its revival as it continues to hold the top spot as the most requested cocktail. This uncomplicated concoction is potent yet refined. Translated to a tea, this classic cocktail is ready to make history again. Lapsang souchong, a smoked black tea leaf unmistakable in its hearty depth, is reminiscent of a fine bourbon whiskey. To tame its smoky overtones, it’s blended with fine black tea to strike a perfect balance, just like superior spirits. These two tea leaves are garnished with orange peel and wild cherry bark, just like its namesake libation. A touch of hibiscus petals lend a beautiful red tint, classic.

Steeping Tips

  • Use fresh, cold water. The quality of water will affect the taste of your tea.
  • Take care not to poor boiling water over your tea. Boiling water will scorch the tea leaves.
  • Use a strainer or infuser basket to steep your tea rather than a tea ball or clamping spoon. This gives room for the whole leaf tea and herbals to expand and fully infuse.
  • Remove the tea from the water after the designated steeping time. Over steeped tea, or stewed tea, will create a bitter tasting brew.
  • For a stronger tasting brew, simply add more tea to your strainer or infuser basket before steeping.
  • Always remove tea leaves from water to prevent the tea from becoming bitter.
