We took traditional Honey Orchid oolong for a spin by barrel aging the leaves with 2-Year Straight Bourbon from Seven Caves Spirits. After a year, new notes reminiscent of cinnamon, star anise, and juniper add complexity to this naturally sweet, fruity tea. Bring out this bag for your next hearty meal, preferably something grilled or smoked.
