Tradition meets innovation. The TEALEAVES x RUDD Cabernet French Oak Tea was the result of applying the very best techniques and ingredients from the Old World, New World, and Ancient World, drawing parallels between wine and tea.
Aged in a used French oak barrel gifted to TEALEAVES by the RUDD Oakville Estate, the “memory” of the wine has been translated to the tea, resulting in a wine tea of great complexity and superior palate.
TEALEAVES blenders experimented with various techniques to artfully marry the aromatics of wine, French oak and jasmine imperial-scented white tea. Variables of humidity, temperature and aging time were carefully databased to determine the optimal matrix. The result? A respectful balance between the great culture that is tea, grape and French oak.
