Ice Wine, or Eiswein is a German tradition where grapes are left on the vine to fully ripen, then freeze before being picked to make ice wine. This makes the flavor richer and sweeter than normal wines because the frozen grapes are starved of their water content, making them incredibly pure and condensed sources of grapiness. Ice Wine black tea captures the deep richness and sweetness of this wine in a black tea. The sweet pear notes with hints of berry and caramel in this blend only get better when you add a little sugar to your cup. Serve it iced for a crisp, refreshing brew that you will delight in sharing with friends and family.

Some teas are recommended for brewing with boiling water, while others are brewed at lower temperatures. Even when brewing a tea at a lower temperature, it is recommended that you first boil the water (to kill bacteria etc.) and then allow the water to cool to the correct temperature (ice cubes speed up the process). While you can certainly brew any tea with boiling water, it will change the flavor of the tea.
