Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka Review

5 StarStarStarStarStar

As I mentioned before, we’re all Southerners here at VodkaBuzz. It’s ingrained in our heritage and psyche that sweet tea is the best beverage on the planet next to vodka. We’ve been watching the sweet tea vodka movement pick up steam, and, while we haven’t done many sweet tea vodka reviews, we’ve tried to cover the trend. Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka is the newest kid on the block that we know of, and we’re excited to see if it lives up to our expectations as Southerners and vodka drinkers.

The Shot

I’m no tea aficionado. I love sweet tea, but I can’t rhapsodize about the different tastes of different types of tea at different stages in growth from different parts of the world. I know the taste I like, and I like it with more than a cup of sugar per gallon (well, technically, Splenda nowadays). That said, I like what Deep Eddy is doing with their tea. The syrupy-when-cold mixture has a deep taste of dark tea that’s brought to a brighter, lighter note as the sugary flavors of the clover honey slowly becomes more discernible as my taste buds steep in the drink. The vodka isn’t detectable until the swallow, and even then, it just pops in enough to remind me that I am, in fact, drinking an alcoholic beverage. If you’re sipping Deep Eddy straight, you’re not going to need a chaser. The chaser is built in. When you’re done, there’s just the pleasant aftertaste of tea and a little warmth from the ethanol. With Deep Eddy, it’s not as though you’re drinking a flavored vodka; you’re drinking a sweet tea cocktail. That, I can appreciate.

The Mixed Drink

Now, for some folks that don’t like their sweet tea as sweet as we do in the South, there’s a simple cocktail you can make at most homes if all you bought was a bottle of Deep Eddy. Just add water. I mixed at around 1/3 to 1/2 water with the vodka, and it drank almost exactly like a glass of sweet tea. While the water brought out the vodka flavor a little more, you still need to be careful with Deep Eddy or you’ll forget that you’re still doing better than the ABV of beer and probably better than that of wine. Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka mixed down with water, what Deep Eddy calls The Skinny Dip, is a brilliant cocktail for your summer cookout or relaxing on your back porch.

That’s not all. Some folks like their tea with a little lemon, and simulating this with sweet tea vodka just requires a little bit of Simply Lemonade. Mix about 2 parts Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka with 1 part Simply Lemonade, and let it sit for a few minutes. I like to let it sit so that it warms up a little bit and the flavors can mingle a bit more. Try mixing it at different ratios to dial in on what you like best. Deep Eddy with Simply Lemonade makes for a nice cocktail (it’s the best way to drink sweet tea vodka, as far as I’m concerned), but, as I said before, be careful! It’s easy to drink a lot!

Opinions

Miles said his straight shot of Deep Eddy tasted like he’d expect sweet tea to taste, but with a kick at the end. Mel mixed Deep Eddy with Simply Lemonade, noting that her particular mixture tasted “just like Nestea”. From what I gather, that was exactly how she wanted her cocktail to taste.

In my opinion, Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka is a solid entry in the nascent sweet tea flavored vodka landscape. Deep Eddy is great to sip on and it is as good to mix with as it is to drink straight. Summer is just around the bend, so you definitely want to pick up a bottle to enjoy in your favorite porch swing or rocking chair as the days get longer and more humid (at least where we’re sitting).

Rated 5 out of 5.

    I’ve always been a sweet tea drinker but never a vodka drinker. My favorite BBQ joint in Fruita Colorado started running Deep Eddys Sweet Tea Vodka with lemonade as a summer special drink a few years ago and I’m hooked. Best drink ever!

    To each his own, but for my book Deep Eddy is the best sweet tea on the market.

      I haven’t had a sweet tea vodka that is similar. I liked Dukes Sweet Tea Vodka, but it didn’t taste anywhere near the same. Theirs is more for making cocktails (e.g. Dukes on top of unsweet tea). I’ve had Fyrefly before, but it has some prevalent alcohol flavors in it and the tea tastes a bit less “dark”.

        I wasn’t crazy about the Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, though it made for a tasty drink at my sisters Birthday party. Dukes brand of vodka is on my “Buy on sight” list, but unfortunately like Deep Eddy I’m not able to find it. I may have to break down and purchase a bottle from an online vendor. It increases the price from $18.99 to something like $38.00….just checked, its $40.11.

        So, I’m going to talk my wife into letting me purchase this vodka because I’m in need of a good sweat tea vodka. She’s been pretty open to this new hobby of making drinks I’ve taken up. She even bought me the Crystal Skull gift set. (though she does end up with free drinks and a bartender for her female gatherings.)

        Let me update that price, I figured if I’m paying over $20.00 in shipping I might as well buy the big bottle. A 1.75 ltr bottle is 29.99. With packaging and shipping it comes out to $61.17.

    thought I couldn’t get Deep Eddys Sweet Tea vodka in my area,but darn near every off sale has it. Thanks to the salesman who got them to carry it in the great city of Fargo,ND!! Love,love,love the tea. I mixed it on ice with diet lemonade and it is awesome! I found my new summer “cooler” for year round enjoyment.

    Deep Eddy tea has become my favorite libation. I mix a half glass of brewed Lipton iced tea with another half of Deep Eddy for a wonderful combination.. I love the fact that they use actual tea leaves and real honey, rather than just flavoring. But as the reviewer stated above, you really need to be careful- its easy to over do it with this stuff! However, unlike with most other liquor, I have never had a single hangover after a night of enjoying Deep Eddy- absolutely no headache, etc. I am in my early 50s so that normally happens if I am drinking anything else this fun – maybe its the 10x distillation?

    Being a Texan I have tasted a lot of different sweet teas, this sweet tea vodka by Deep Eddy is in my book the King of them all!!! The price is fair , the drink is amazing , and havnt found a person yet that didn’t like it after trying this vodka even if they wernt a vodka fan. I had brought a bottle to a BYOB gentalmens club one night , and between me and two performers we had finished the whole bottle befor the night was up. The vodka was so good the owner of the club who had only gotten a small sample paid the taxi fair for me to go and get 3 more bottles and share with the rest of the performers. Long story short in a few minutes after coming back to the club I was the man with ALL THE GIRLS…. and I mean ALL THE GIRLS!!!

    Hangover in a bottle. I just had some Deep Eddy vodka last weekend, not the tea. It was harsh and you get that medicinal after taste like most column still vodkas. The bottle said distilled 10x but that takes all of 3 hours so I guess you could distill it 7,000 times and it would still not be smooth on the tongue.
