Have you ever tried Ontario ice wine? This amazing sub-genre of Canada's commercial wine industry has won many awards over the years, most notably Le Grand Prix d'Honneur at the 1991 Vinexpo in Bordeaux, France. The complex method for making Ontario ice wine is modeled after the centuries-old techniques for making German Eiswein. In order to retain their sweet flavour, the grapes are harvested after the first hard freeze at a minimum of minus 8°C, then pressed immediately while still frozen.

The thick, sweet, grapey character of ice wine makes it a natural after dinner desert wine. It also partners beautifully with our white tea, a Pai Mu Tan from Fujian. This tea is often described as jammy, with sweet notes - perfect for layering with the sweet icy wine. Brew a pot today and savour the award winning flavour of Ontario. Note the sweet velvety tones highlighted by hints of grape. This one makes a fantastic iced tea.


 
The Benefits of Drinking White Tea

White tea has a long history of hospitality as well. In fact, the Japanese tea ceremony, one of the world's most intricate, has it's roots in a Chinese Song Dynasty ceremony based on an early form of white tea.

The amazing qualities of this tea cant be disputed. White teas give hardly any colour when brewed, while the flavour is light, sweet and loaded with nuance. White teas are amazingly healthy and typically have less caffeine and higher anti-oxidant levels than black, green or oolong teas. A wonderful tea to add to your collection today.



It's now time to throw away the teabags and try a great taste experience. You may not believe the difference that comes with using premium tea and brewing in the old fashioned way. Just as coffee has seen a revival with millions of people changing from instants to fresh roast beans, so also has tea been seeing a revival with new tea houses opening around the country, and the world.


 
Hot Tea Brewing Method

Heat water to 80°C (180°F). Place 1 teaspoon of tea per cup into your teapot, and add 1 for the pot (for a more intense flavour, add a bit more tea). Pour the water into the pot and let it steep for about 3 minutes. Pour into your cup and enjoy.
Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup. When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times.
Some like to brew this straight in the cup without an infuser, but be careful not to drink the leaves at the bottom of your cup. The pattern of the leaves is said to tell your fortune.
Milk not recommended for white tea.


 
Iced Tea Brewing Method

Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the amount of tea used per cup. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.

Alternatively, you can cold brew the tea by placing the tea leaves in a jug and adding cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.

To make 1 litre of iced tea: Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant jug. Pour half a pint (275ml) of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving jug with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving jug while straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the jug with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.
