This is the new black tea and elderflower infused Absolute vodka inspired by Boston. Proceeds will benefit the Charles River Foundation. It is as good reason as any to indulge curiosity if you have been party to the St. Germain craze.
"Everyone loves elderflower — you can’t turn around in a bar without getting hit by a bottle of St. Germain — but the addition of tea is what makes this vodka so intriguing. Yes, elderflower is strong at first sip, but the tea component comes along quickly after, and in fact starts to dominate the vodka within a few seconds. The finish offers a lightly bitter black tea character, which makes you rush back for another sip to get that sweet elderflower back onto your tongue."
I would love to hear the thoughts of those who have tried it while we try to locate a bottle here in the arctic tundra.
