From Herbal Infusions

If you have ever had the joy of tasting Niagara ice wine then this tea will be familiar to you- and safe to enjoy morning, noon, or night!

Memories of winter time Niagara vineyards are embraced by the delicious fresh and full bodied white grape flavor with hints of exotic fruit. Cup characteristics are bright and coppery.

I wasn’t familiar with Ontario Ice Wine, I just requested the sample because it sounded interesting.

But as I’m wont to do, I satisfied my curiousity about Ontario Ice Wine by looking it up. Here’s some information, for the also-curious:

http://winesofontario.org/MediaCentre/html/Icewine.htm

This was the tiniest of the little samples, not even enough for half a cup. Its leaves look like fairly basic, plain black tea leaves but the smell is very distinctive. A sweet, wine/grape scent, like a dessert wine (which, having read the article at the above link, I now know isn’t surprising). Not having had Ice Wine, I must liken it to something I have had. Sauterne?

The aroma of the steeped tea is grapier, or perhaps raisinier than it is winey, and it’s sweet. It has something else going on as well. Dates? And also seems to have a floral note. The color is orange/brown and on the light side.

There is a dusky, wine taste to the tea, but it isn’t as sweet as the aroma would lead one to expect. I enjoyed it, but it isn’t a stand out for me.

Another free sample; 1.1g in 4oz seemed to work fine. Well flavored black tea- fruity, sweet, smooth enough to drink plain. Would probably be tasty iced. 2nd steep at 5 minutes is equally good. If I wanted a grapey/winey black tea on hand, I would happily buy this, but it’s not quite spectacular enough to have me putting in an order right now.

Since I drank the Design a Tea Ice Wine tea yesterday I decided to give this a try today since the flavors of the other were fresh in my memory. The liquor was a lovely deep red. However, though it smelled very much like the Design a Tea version it wasn’t nearly as flavorful. It was slightly bitter, not as sweet and there was only the slightest hint of muscatel.

It’s interesting to try this, being a largely non-alcoholic person. This tea is rather floral and perfumed. All told, it’s not bad, though I think a wine aficionado (or someone who at least enjoyed an occasional cup) would be able to say a bit more about the taste than I could.
