Low Country

Bourbon Sugar Black Tea

Rated 4.6 out of 5
Based on 301 reviews

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

This tea 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.

Smoke flavor

I loved this in the sampler, and ordered a tin. It may be a batch issue but it has a very strong smoked flavor. Maybe this is supposed to be the burnt sugar component but I definitely don’t remember it being overwhelming from the sample. Im making my way through it, but just because I'm out of everything else. Got on to order some others and figured I’d share my experience.

Excellent flavor -- a mild sweet flavor without added sugar

I love this tea. The flavor is rich and deep, very mildly sweet. I had some concern about the tea when I noticed that it contains barley malt because I try to avoid any added sugars in my diet. I posted a question about this, and the August team offered me a very helpful answer that set my mind at ease (see the Q&A page for details). I'm not only pleased with this wonderful tea, but also really impressed with the quality of ingredients and responsiveness of the August Uncommon team.

Disappointed

Would prefer to have not bought Low Country.

From the description, it is a tea I would like…

THE BEST

Hands-down, Low Country is my favorite tea. I love many of the August Uncommon Teas, but this is the one I always come back to. The flavors are so wonderful together! Love it!

Great tea

I just got my tea today and this one is my favorite so far. I did use 6 grams instead of 3.5 as I enjoy very strong tea. I am curious if there is a bold flavor?
