Contains high antioxidant level of 7.5-9.5% vs 5-6% for mass-market teas.
Character: Smooth & silky with light Riesling and berry notes. A mild astringent finish. The thick sweet grapey character of ice wine makes it a natural after dinner desert wine and a natural partner to our white tea, a Pai mu tan from Fujian. This tea is often described as jammy, with sweet notes - perfect for layering with the sweet icy wine. Brew a pot today and savor the award-winning flavor of Ontario. Note sweet velvety tones highlighted by hints of grape. Makes a fantastic iced tea!
