This collection of The Republic of Tea’s Sonoma Iced Teas represent a new concept in an herbal tea blend. With these delicious teas, the appreciation of Sonoma County’s renowned vineyards is no longer limited to wine aficionados.

The fine wine grape skins are sourced from WholeVine, a line of wholesome offerings with all-natural ingredients from fine wine vineyards in and around Sonoma County.

Free of caffeine, alcohol and calories, Sonoma Iced Teas are a wonderful alternative to high calorie soft drinks and sugary juices. The antioxidants contained within the fine wine grape skins also contribute to a diverse and healthy diet. Each tin contains six pouches that brew one quart of iced tea.

The collection showcases three varietals for iced tea: Sonoma Chardonnay, Sonoma Rosé, and Sonoma Cabernet. Similar to wine, the three offerings in the Sonoma Iced Tea collection impart unique and identifying characteristics:

  • SONOMA CHARDONNAY – Reminiscent of a vacation in a glass, Sonoma Chardonnay Iced Tea has a base of Sonoma Chardonnay fine wine grape skins infused with tropical pineapple and sweet peach notes.
  • SONOMA ROSÉ – Sonoma Rosé Iced Tea is a sophisticated sipper made from Sonoma Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc fine wine grape skins married with ripe strawberries and crisp red apples resulting in a light and floral finish.
  • SONOMA CABERNET – Sonoma Cabernet Iced Tea brings a festive infusion of Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon fine wine grape skins with sweet, juicy oranges and the deep berry note of black currants. Skip the wine goblet and pour into a big, tall glass to enjoy this refreshing berry blend.
