Ice wine tea is an exceptional flavoured black tea. It gives a delicious fresh white grape flavour with hints of exotic fruit that pleasantly lingers on the tongue. The cup is bright and coppery.
Ice wine tea contains , Freeze dried grapes, White tea, Ontario Icewine and natural flavours. The black tea base for Ice Wine tea is Orange Pekoe grade tea from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva. These three high-grown districts produce flavourful teas that have classic ‘Ceylon’ tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavour notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery color and, most importantly - perfect for use as the base tea of this flavoured teas. The Ice Wine uses natural flavouring oils not crystals to give the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in a liquid tea treat. The high quality tea tastes good and natural flavours do not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea.
Natural flavours give the tea a clear character compared with artificial flavours which can be overpowering and leave an aftertaste. Natural flavours tend to be ‘soft ‘ and more subtle flavours. We find this a refreshing change and a beneficial attribute of our naturally flavoured teas.
