GSN Review: Absolut Wild Tea

If you missed the 2009 Absolut Boston Limited Edition, here’s your chance to try it.  The only difference between the two vodkas seems to be that the new Wild Tea flavor has more of an elderflower forward palate, which is an improvement.  Both expressions are quite tasty and work very well with citrus based drinks.

The nose is fresh and sweet with loads of elderflower.  The distillate as with all Absolut vodkas is impeccable and holds the flavors quite well.  The tannic qualities of the black tea offset the fruity qualities of the elderflower, melding both into a refreshing and elegant whole.  Try using this along with St. Germain for a richer elderflower cocktail experience, or in a highball with lemon-lime soda or ginger ale.
