TECHNIQUE

Wine Barrel Aging Tea

The barrel used to produce the 2010 Rudd Oakville Estate Red offers complex mineral, fruit, wood and vanilla notes, which plays in perfect harmony with the imperial scented jasmine white tea. The tea was aged 200+ days in the French oak barrel at TEALEAVES’ Vancouver Blending Center.

TEALEAVES Master Blenders conducted weekly tastings, modifying the absorption through ambient temperature and relative humidity – to blend this tea with optimal balance and nuance.

A pleasing and elegant splurge

I was really hesitant to buy such a special tea. I’m glad I did. I save it for special days and it does no disappoint. The aroma is elegant, slightly oaky, and it does not smell like wine which I was expecting. I tried it hot and iced and both turned out pleasing and calming.

Smooth cup of tea

Pleasantly surprised by the smoothness of the tea. A hint of smokiness but not overwhelming. An enjoyable experience.
