Although most of us don’t own any wineries if you already have one ~ then congratulations! And please turn back to the previous page! Cause I may introduce your winery next time! But for those don’t have a winery, we can still create a healthy and happy living attitude on our own. Cause we can actually make our own wine! Today we introduce you the black tea cherry cider from ALCHEMA. This wine’s main body is cherry, showing more sweetness to the wine. And black tea works as an accompaniment, giving cherry cider a crimson red veil to balance its’ sour, sweetness and Tannin flavor and then bringing long tea aftertaste and strong body to your mouth. This layered texture will give you strong impacts from the smell, the look and the taste. Let you experience the sparks of the ingredients from the west and the east.
This cherry ciders’ alcohol volume is around 4% and sweetness around 13.7 Brix. Its’ preparation and brewing procedures are both easy. For the ingredients, you only need to prepare black tea and cherry or cherry juice. You can adjust the amount and the breed on your will to make it the perfect wine. This wine is an easy-making wine while its’ taste is not easy at all. If you use ALCHEMA to brew, you only need to wash the bottles, connect ALCHEMA with the app and kill bacteria via ultraviolet light. Then put black tea, cherry or cherry juice, sugar and Premier Cuvee yeast, which can elevate the fruit flavor, in your bottle. Let ALCHEMA stay in a 17~27。C environment with at least 2 days waiting. After fermentation, you only need to put it into a fridge to sediment yeast in a low-temperature environment for around 2~3 days. And you can then put this cider to share with your family members and friends.
“A good wine must at first have a perfect balance on alcohol volume, sourness, Tannin and flavor. Actually, life is also like wine. Sometimes life requires us to strive hard, while sometimes requires us to leisurely savor a good wine under the sun.” Yao Ming said. Although we don’t have wineries of our own, ALCHEMA can be your personal winery, accompanying you to taste all the good in your life. Are you going to savor your life now?
