Are you a fan of a cuppa but also a glass of wine? A new product has put both of these beverages together, to create a one very special drink.
A new wine is available on Aussie shelves, taking the best bits of two types of beverages and melding them into one. Tea & Wine is carefully crafted by subtly infusing the delicate notes of organic loose-leaf tea into wine, making it the perfect tipple for those who are fans of both drinks.
The winemakers behind Tea & Wine have worked tirelessly on perfecting the balance between the two drinks, trialling hundreds of combinations to create a wine product with delicious flavours that make sense.
How does it work?
Tea & Wine spokesperson, Helene Herges explains, “Infusion is when you carefully combine ingredients to enhance a base. In our case, the base is beautiful Australian Chardonnay and Cabernet grapes that we infuse with bespoke loose-leaf organic tea blends to lift and intensify flavour and aroma.
"We experimented with many ways of infusing the delicate notes of tea into wine and finally after years of research, discovered the best method to find the perfect integration."
What does it taste like?
Tea & Wine have two varietals, each with their own unique flavour:
Unoaked Chardonnay infused with Camomile Tea
Vibrant pale yellow/green in colour, this wine has, according to the tasing notes: "A floral and fragrant palate with a backbone of golden apple and citrus from the Chardonnay grapes, enhanced by the infusion of organic Egyptian Camomile blossoms introducing a bright aroma and touch of balanced sweetness."
Cabernet Sauvignon infused with Chai Tea
A full-bodied wine infused with organic Sri-Lankan Chai, this wine is a deep red wine with purple hues. According to the tasing notes: "This varietal has a smooth and ripe palate displaying soft tannins and roundness, perfectly balanced with the infusion of organic Sri Lankan Chai providing layers of aromatic, warm spices like ginger, cardamom, star anise and a hint of vanilla."
