Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the last few years, hard seltzers have become your friends’ favorite beverage to post about on social media. While hard seltzers have received all the press coverage, boozy teas have quietly grown into the top-selling hard seltzer alternative. During quarantine, a friend of mine recommended Owl’s Brew, a boozy tea brand. Before the recommendation, I didn’t even know boozy tea was a thing.
However, I got tired of drinking hard liquor or the artificial ingredients in most hard seltzers. So, I decided to give Owl’s Brew a try and ordered their variety 12-pack through Drizly. It came with four different boozy tea flavors, English Breakfast Tea, Darjeeling Tea, White Tea, Raspberry & Watermelon, and Matcha Tea. Their teas are fresh-brewed organic spiked hard tea, made with 100% all-natural ingredients. There are ZERO artificial flavors, natural flavors, or sugar substitutes.
Surprisingly, after trying all of the boozy tea flavors, I found the Matcha tea with its tropical flavor to be my favorite. I usually don’t enjoy drinking Matcha, but this tea combined with the pineapple and chamomile is unlike any Matcha I’ve tried. My second favorite is the Darjeeling Tea & Hibiscus Flowers flavor. Even better is that none of them tasted like alcohol. This is what I am looking for in an alcoholic beverage.
My Honest View of Owl’s Brew
Every Owl’s Brew flavor is crafted with 100% real ingredients, made with fresh-brewed tea, and is gluten-free. Owl’s Brew provides the breakdown of all the ingredients in their boozy teas on their website. Thankfully, Owl’s Brew has recently rolled out the ability to order their boozy teas directly through their site. This has made my life easier, but I wish they offered a monthly variety-pack subscription.
With Owl’s Brew, you know what you’re drinking in your boozy tea, unlike a lot of the hard seltzers out on the market. Most hard seltzers are really sweet, and I feel like I will have a major hangover the next day. Owl’s Brew is different. It tastes like a small batch high-end tea from a boutique coffee shop.
Owl’s Brew has become one of my regular drink choices to enjoy during the week or weekend. I am super happy that I no longer need to suffer through basic, naturally flavored, mango-flavored hard seltzer. Here’s to the rest of 2022 drinking a great, natural boozy tea made from real ingredients.
