What do winery owners drink on hot days when they don’t want the alcohol content? Well, the owner of a local winery drinks our champagne raspberry on ice. His discriminating palate can appreciate the subtle flavor and the quality of the tea itself. Wine and tea have many common characteristics and this tea doesn’t try to ‘be’ champagne, it just hints at it subtly, as subtly as it does the raspberry. ‘Beautiful’ might be a fair word for this tea. I prefer it iced.
Steep this tea for 3 minutes at 170-175F
(Chinese tea, safflowers, champagne and raspberry flavor)
