WINE PAIRING: Pepernoten with Sparkling Tea

Have you prepared everything to celebrate Sinterklaas next week? Are Pepernoten in the list? That Dutch cookie-like confectionery, traditionally associated with the early December Sinterklaas holiday in the Netherlands and Belgium? 🙂

Pepernoten are light brown, round shaped, and made from rye flour, sugar and anise, and sometimes also cinnamon, and clove. They will definitely go well with a “tea” – The Sparkling RØD Tea that we’re delighted to introduce today.

Sparkling Tea by Copenhagen Sparkling Tea Company is a new type of beverage with the exclusive taste, which is achieved by using carefully selected teas and solely organic ingredients. The tea leaves soak in both hot and cold water over and extensive period of time, to extract the perfect flavour.

The ingredients of low-alcoholic The Sparkling RØD Tea are organic green, white, black and herbal teas, with a base of white wine and a dash of organic lemon juice, and finally the Hibiscus flower. Hibiscus has the same impact, as the blue grape has on rosé wine. The longer we let it soak, the more dry and red it becomes. This is carefully adjusted together with 9 other teas, which add the delicate notes of wild berries, a crisp undertone, and a long finish thanks to the black teas.

If you are in Amsterdam and curious to taste The Sparkling Tea, you can find it here.
