A sip of history! Named for the events in the summer of 1794 our Whiskey Rebellion Tea was inspired by President George Washington's call out to the militia to subdue violent protests by so called 'Whiskey Rebels' in Western Pennsylvania. The Rebels were farmers and whiskey distillers protesting taxes imposed on distilled spirits. The call out of the militia dispersed most of the protesters, and secured the new government's authority.
In an interesting piece of history, after he left his Presidency, Washington built one of the largest distilleries in the United States.
This small batch tea is briefly aged in a whiskey barrel to infuse it with the aromas and flavor of a bourbon and to remember events from our country's early history. We hope you enjoy the blend of aromas and flavors. Serve hot or iced. Can be used in a Mocktail.
Notes: Aroma of Bourbon. Hints of Caramel, Oak and a slight hint of smoke.
