Tea Review – Owl’s Brew – Tea blends to mix with alcohol

Company Name: OWLS BREW

 

Probably the first tea “brew” to mix with alcohol that really stands out. You can actually taste the teas and the alcohol is just a pleasant 2nd to the tea blend.

You will get this very cool card that explains the concept in 3 easy lessons. It’s simple yet there is nothing simple about it, it’s full of flavor, fun and enjoyment.

I mentioned in one of the reviews trying these with just water, that’s going to be a no go, the alcohol really adds a balance to these brews, the water does it no justice and ends up being more of a super sweet beverage. Definitely these were made for alcohol pairing and with that they do an incredible job, actually I was amazed at how much more the tea flavors came out in the alcohol then with straight water.

Once opened store in refrigerator and use within two weeks, honestly the bottles are a perfect size for a few drinks and if you are sharing with company you won’t have to worry about that 2 weeks going by and not using your brews.

Review:

I would say this is one of the most interesting brews, mixed with my Vodka it really has such a lovely cocoa flavor with a little bit of a spicy note to it, spicy as in spicy not as in alcohol. The website tells us this artisanal mix is handcrafted in small batches.

Review:

Interesting mixture of a wine and a vodka but I wanted to give it a try. It’s really a very light and mellow taste that flows easily with a very soft elegant wine taste. I wanted to try this with just water because it’s wine taste really stood out. See beginning statement about adding these to water.

Company highlights, notes and more:

 

Owl’s Brew was founded by tea-drinking boozers (always in moderation).

We were looking for a sipper that was lighter, fresher, funner.We were tired of our go-to vodka cran. While an easy bar-call, there was too much sugar, and a serious lack of hydration. We tried the old fashioned cocktails: Manhattan, Negroni, Tom Collins.  While we felt very “Mad Men” ordering, one clunky cocktail was plenty and we’re round two kind of gals…

It didn’t take us long to think of a product that offered endless flavors, that was light and fresh – our favorite non-boozy sipper –  tea!

 

Our first brew was simple – we switched out cranberry juice for cranberry tisane…our second step was to sub rooibos for sweet vermouth… yum.  Steps 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 were not quite as simple, but we won’t bore you with those details. If you are reading this, you are looking at the final product.

 

Owl’s Brew is a tea crafted for cocktails and our favorite way to Drink Wise.
