Description: In the summer of 1794, President George Washington called out 12,950 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.
We briefly aged this small batch tea 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.
Steep for 3 to 5 minutes at 185 degrees.
