    Default What alcohol goes well with tea?

    I'm big on tea... and on alcolhol as well. Both are among my biggest of vices but I somehow can't seem to combine them even if the situation desires so.

    Some of my friends mix whisky with tea and even coffee... yuck! Some like some strong herbal rum or liqueur with tea but I don't jive. I can drink it straight all the night if I like to... but if I want a nice cup of tea with an extra kick I really don't get it that way.

    So what is it that you mix with your tea on the morning on the day after? What do you mix in your tea when you need to stay up and get going? What is it that preserves or enchances the original taste while getting you to next gear? Share your recipes! Share your wisdom for all the World to enjoy!

    Firefly Vodka - Originally made in South Carolina (USA) to be drank at SEC (American Football) tailgating parties

    IT TASTES LIKE SWEETENED TEA!!! you can basically mix it with water and you have booze that tastes like sweet tea... no joke... I'm a tea addict and I love the stuff!

    IF you can find it, it's TOTALLY something you will need to try



    EDIT: Just saw you're from Finland. On their website it doesn't look like they distribute outside the US... Sorry... Maybe a US bro will check it out though, so I'll leave it here

    One of my roommates mixed a bunch of Ten High with tea back in college. He proceeded to throw a butter knife at my friend's head.

    So don't mix Ten High and tea.

    How about Long Island Ice Tea? There's not any tea in it, but lots of alcohol.

    That's what I was gonna say! Long Island Iced Tea - don't mix booze with tea, mix booze until it tastes like tea!!!

    I just had a dream that I was mixing tea and Scotch, but I don't know if I would try that for real.

    I've seen some pro alcoholics put vodka in tea, but only to conceal their drinking, so I doubt it's any good.

    Also, say no to long islands. All that sweet and sour will eff your stomach up. Trust me, I was a huge LIT/whiskey sour fan until I discovered the downfalls of both.

    Why not have an alcoholic beverage and a cup of tea? Why ruin the flavors of both by mixing them together?

    Twisted Tea.

    Need more kick? A bit of vodka gives it even more kick.
