Chandon High Tea
When you combine two of the world’s most noble beverages, the result is a regal delight. Chandon Reserve Brut (93 points and Editor’s Choice, Wine Enthusiast) is created using fruit specifically selected for the Reserve style and aged for a minimum of three years on the lees. Twinings Earl Grey tea (named for Charles, Second Earl Grey, Prime Minister of England) is made from the finest black tea leaves blended with the orange fruit flavor of bergamot. A classy cocktail for discriminating guests.
