Long Description:
These elegant wines are produced from 100% pure fruit or natural honey without the addition of artificial flavors. The distinct taste of these wines can be enjoyed in the tradition of Medieval England. In the spirit of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, experience these unique wines as a pilgrimage in sensory delight.Taj
Taj is Ethiopian style mead with white wine characteristics. It is the result of the spontaneous fermentation of honey, water and gesho, a type of organic hops that are grown in the Ethiopian Highlands. Ethiopia boasts the largest bee population in Africa, making it the fourth largest honey producer in the world. Not surprisingly, Taj is the national drink of Ethiopia.

Axum Tej from Saba Tej (Honey Wineis pale yellow in color, with no carbonation. It has a luxurious honey nose with overtones of spice. The taste is crisp and fresh, not syrupy, with a dry finish.
