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.

For RUDD Barrel Aged Cabernet 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.

White tea should be steeped for 3 minutes at a temperature of 180°F or 89°C.

White tea is traditionally grown in China and is only harvested for a few days each year before the Spring rain starts. This is when the silver downy hairs appear on the young unopened buds of the tea plant, hand picked for their freshness and delicate nature.

White tea is what we like to call a self-drinker. It should be served plain with no additions, to preserve the delicate palate it presents.
