Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 180°F in a kettle. Add 1.5 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 4 minutes.

Any of these variables can be changed to suit your particular palate, so experiment! Many teas can be steeped multiple times (especially green, white, and oolong). When steeping a tea multiple times increase the length of steep time slightly with each successive infusion.

Iced Tea Brewing Instructions:

1) Hot water method: For 1 gallon of iced tea, bring half a gallon of filtered water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat, and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz of tea), let steep for 4 minutes. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. If you want to serve immediately, you can pour the concentrate over ice to cool and dilute, then pour over ice again.

2) Sun tea: use a glass container and add 1.5 tsp of loose tea of each cup of water directly into the jug. Then set in the sun for a few hours, tasting occasionally to get the desired strength.

3) Cold brew: The slow cold-water-steeping method extracts natural sweetness and flavor from the tea leaf. It lessens the bitterness and tangy-ness produced by tannic acid so your tea tastes smooth and mild. Add 1.5 tsp of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

Label Art

Smooth and silky with light Riesling and berry notes. The thick sweet grapey character of ice wine partnered with Pai mu tan white tea makes a natural after dinner dessert tea.

Extra Info:

The complex method for making Ontario ice wine is modeled after the centuries old techniques for making German Eiswein. (The first ice wines were produced in Germany about 700 years ago.) According to Canadian law, in order to be considered true Ice Wine, all grapes must be harvested after the first hard freeze at a minimum of 8.

Freezing temperature is key. If it doesnt come quickly enough in the season the grapes can rot. If it is too severe, the grapes will become to hard and no juice can be extracted. In order to retain their sweet flavor, the harvested grapes need to be pressed immediately while still frozen. The pressed juice is thick and sugary, much like the wine produced after fermentation!

Favorite Tea

  5 Stars

Ontario IceWine is my favorite, favorite tea. It's actually the reason I became an Ohio Tea Co. customer. My local tea shop stopped carrying it, much to my dismay. To me, it has a floral flavor, but not overpowering. Though I do enjoy many teas, this is the only one that makes my mouth water when I open it's container.
