Proof66 Notes

Qi (pronounced, "chee") is a producer of spirits made from a variety of teas. Their teas are considered organic and come from Numi Organic Tea. Not surprisingly, they're based in the bay area of California where "a rich tradition bridges the east and the west."

This particular liqueur is the black tea version made from Lapsang Souchong - Smoky Tarry Tea, a set of fruits and spices, and a bit of brandy.

I think I'll just stick with regular tea.

This is an intensely strong and aromatic liqueur. It can easily overwhelm whatever you're putting it in if you're not cautious. But once you find a good fit... this liqueur can really make some special, exotic, and outstanding cocktails.

I think this is the best liqueur I've ever tasted. So complex and so many layers that keep unfolding. Like a great single malt smoky Scotch. I can see why it wouldn't be for everyone - it's dry for a liqueur and the smoke is unique. Not to be mean, but it's very sophisticated so it probably helps to be a bit of foody. I love this spirit!

I didn't care for the smell or flavor at all.
