Ice Wine Loose Leaf Tea by The Metropolitan Tea Company
Shelf Life: 8 years unopened, 2 years after opening Naturally Flavored Black Tea
Information: Ice wine, the nectar of winter, or should we say nectar of the Canadian Gods. What else could you possibly call a drink that goes for upwards of $250,000 per 11.8 ounces? That's the price you'd pay for an ultra rare bottle of 2000 Chardonnay Ice wine Royal DeMaria. Most Ice wines are priced well below that figure, but they still garner higher prices than traditional wines. Why? The grapes that produce this sweet dessert wine aren't pressed until they are frozen. As such, one fifth the amount of grape juice is pressed from each frozen grape. For vintners, a general rule of thumb is that each frozen grape will yield just one drop of Ice wine. The flavor of Ice wine is divine. Depending on the varietal, the nose may offer notes of peach, pear, honey, dried apricot, and green apple. In the glass, the flavor is a sumptuous combination of apricot, peach, mango, melon, and other sweet fruits. This fabulous blend uses real Ice wine to deliver all the fruity sweetness in a rich, round cup of tea.
