Eiswein Flavoured White Tea is an excellent choice for afternoon tea or to accompany a dessert. The natural flavour of Eiswein's sweet, refreshing peach-like taste goes well with our white tea from the Chinese province of Fujian. This exquisite blend combines the delicate, floral notes of China Pai Mu Tan loose-leaf tea with Eiswein's luscious, fruity essence. The natural Eiswein flavour adds a touch of sophistication to this elegant tea, making it perfect for casual and formal occasions.
Eiswein is a rare and highly sought-after dessert wine known for its intense sweetness and rich, concentrated flavours. This exceptional taste profile is achieved by allowing grapes to freeze on the vine before harvesting. The result is a wine that boasts an array of complex flavours, including apricot, peach, honey, and tropical fruit.
When combined with China Pai Mu Tan white tea, the Eiswein flavour adds a delightful sweetness and depth to the tea while still allowing the delicate and subtle notes of the white tea to shine through. The combination of these two elements creates a harmonious and well-balanced flavour experience.

How Eiswein is Made
Eiswein, also called "Ice Wine," is a unique and delicious dessert wine made from grapes frozen naturally on the vine. Eiswein is mainly produced in colder places where wine is grown, such as Germany, Austria, and Canada.
To make Eiswein, you have to leave the grapes on the vine until late in the winter and let them freeze on their own. This process of freezing the grapes concentrates the sugars and flavours inside them, making a delicious wine. The best time to pick these frozen grapes is when the temperature is between -7°C and -10°C (19°F and 14°F).
Once the grapes have frozen, they are carefully picked by hand and pressed right away while they are still frozen. The water in the grapes stays as ice crystals, which separate from the juice that has been concentrated. This process means less juice is made but has more sugar and stronger flavours.
Due to the high sugar levels, the fermentation process for Eiswein is slow and can take several months. The final product is a rich, sweet, complex, and acidic wine that goes well with desserts or can be drunk as an after-dinner drink. Eiswein often tastes like tropical fruits, honey, and citrus, making it a delightful and luxurious wine.
