Bourbon Sugar Black Tea

Rated 4.7 out of 5
Based on 513 reviews

Tastes Like: burnt sugar, buckwheat, chicory, bourbon
Feels Like: the forward familiarity of the south

Our number one top-selling black tea for almost 10 years. This tea that is so uniquely delicious, it makes people leave other brands for good.

Details & Ingredients

Low Country has the ostentatious warmth of a Southern drawl. It's got robust body and character to match. In the first sip, the chewiness of burnt sugar mingles with the dark, rich flavor of buttery buckwheat hotcakes and finally, a latent chicory note. A drop of milk adds a whisper of bourbon. This is a fantastic morning tea to rival an English breakfast. Its potent charm ambles all the livelong day. Recommended for coffee lovers and whisky drinkers.

 Why our tea bags are better

More flavor in every cup

Each August tea bag makes a robust, flavorful cup of tea. The average tea bag has only 2 grams of tea per bag. Ours have 3.5 grams of tea. That's 60% more tea in every bag. More tea = more flavor.

The best ingredients

Our tea uses super premium whole ingredients including whole leaf tea, dried fruit and herbs, and whole spices. Our tea comes from traditional tea estates in the best growing regions on earth. It’s quality you can see, smell, and taste.

100% Plastic free tea bags

Our tea bags are made of plant-based, non-gmo neosoilon mesh, so you don't have to worry about microplastics, bleach, or other harmful substances in your tea.

Brewing instructions

Iced brewing

 The August Difference

Take the test

I took the test to see which tea suited me and they picked the perfect tea for me, Low Country. I love the freshness of this tea. Once brewed you can see the tea leaves, it's so clean. The tutorial of how to make the perfect cup was helpful, too. My goal was to stop drinking coffee, which I honestly didn't think I could do but this tea made it easy. *****

Bourbon Tea

Did not care for it …gave it to a friend…I generally do not like flavored but thought I would give it a try. I guess I need to stick to straight up black tea

Makes a darn good milk tea

I love using black teas as milk teas and was curious as to how Low Country would fare. Tried it with condensed milk and it’s deep brown sugar and burbon notes make the drinking experience a little more unique among my collection.
