After curing in whiskey barrels flavors of char and peat develop with a long lasting sweetness touched by vanilla.
Add 6g tea leaves to a Gaiwan
or Gongfu Teapot
Use 200°F water. The tea leaves can be given a quick rinse or brewed without for a fuller tilt whiskey profile.
Start with a 45 second infusion. The tea can be brewed many times up to your taste and is excellent for making tea infused cocktails and ice cubes.
