Bourbon Sugar Black Tea

Rated 4.6 out of 5
Based on 383 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

Hot brewing
Infuse 1 tea bag in 10 ounces of boiling water (212°f/100° c) for 5 minutes.

Iced brewing
Infuse 1 tea bag in 3 ounces of boiling water (212°f/100° c) for 5 minutes. Dilute with 7 ounces of cold water. Serve over ice.

Infuse it again!
Each tea bag can be reinfused for a milder second cup.

 The August Difference

We make no compromises when we bring our blends to life.

Our tea costs more because we use super premium whole ingredients like vanilla pieces, cardamom, real fruits and whole spices. It’s quality you can see and taste. All our blends are original and exclusively available from August.

Love low country tea

This tea has a very wonderful fragrance when you open the can. I love the convenience of tea bags. The flavor smells sweet- but it isn’t- it is a fairly deep flavor that I appreciate. I like the slightly caramel and smoky feel of this delicious tea.
