Ontario Icewine is a sumptuous after-dinner dessert tea that combines the delicate sweetness of Pai Mu Tan white tea with the rich, grapey character of ice wine. This luxurious blend showcases light Riesling and berry notes, creating a smooth and silky tea experience that is both indulgent and refined.
Ice wine is a unique and exquisite dessert wine made from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. The freezing process concentrates the sugars and the flavors, resulting in a wine that is intensely sweet and flavorful. Ontario, Canada, is particularly renowned for its ice wine production, thanks to its cold winters and ideal grape-growing conditions.
Pai Mu Tan, or Bai Mudan, is a prized Chinese white tea made from the delicate buds and young leaves of the tea plant. Its natural sweetness and subtle floral notes provide an excellent foundation for the rich flavors of ice wine, currants, and cornflower petals in this blend, offering a harmonious and satisfying cup of tea that is perfect for sipping after a meal or as a special treat.
Bring filtered or spring water to 180°F. Add 1.5 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.
