Thanks to Nick Danger for the idea. I infused pint of vodka with loose black tea and it is fantastic. I used a pint canning jar as a trial. Simply two heaping teaspoons of tea and filled it with Stoli. Yum. If I had known it would be this good I'd have done a 750 ml bottle. Anyway I know what I'm going to do with all the vodka I have that isn't being consumed. I think I'll try raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, watermelon and hot pepper.
I guess this has been a fad for a while and there is all kinds of conflicting advice online. I didn't sterilize the jar I did the tea in because it only took about 12 hours to infuse but I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea for the other infusions if they're going to set around for a week or so.
I wonder if an infusion will hold the flavor. I read somewhere they may get weaker over time? Maybe pints are best?
Any recipes, hints, tips, advice would be appreciated.
