There are no short-cuts when it comes to producing Sparkling Tea. The process is complex and therefore needs care and precision. It starts with the careful selection of teas and ends with a bottle of tasteful Sparkling Tea, ready for your enjoyment.
The Selection of Teas
Our Sparkling Teas are made of a blend of up to 13 different teas – organic, of course – in a combination of black, green, white and oolong teas. We only use the highest quality teas from the best plantations and producers around the world, including the exclusive First Flush Darjeeling and Silver Needle tea. It is this high level of quality and the specific combination of teas, that creates the balanced and nuanced taste within every bottle.
Jacob Kocemba, the sommelier behind Sparkling Tea, hand-brews all our tea, since precision and craftmanship are key to creating the right taste and feel. Using the correct brewing temperatures and time intervals are quintessential for the final result. Each tea is therefore handled individually, and every production is done in small batches to ensure no detail is overlooked.
The tea blends are bottled together with a dash of white wine or grape must as natural sweetness and to complement and enhance the flavors of the teas. We also add other natural aromas, like lemon juice, to hit just the right notes. There are no artificial additives in our Sparkling Tea, and we take great pride in that.
The bottles are left to rest for 8-12 weeks. Whereafter the process finally ends at your enjoyment of a chilled glass of Sparkling Tea, best served at around 5 degrees in a champagne glass.
