Jagatea – also called “Jägertee” (Hunters’ Tea) or “Jagertee” – is a typical Tyrolean specialty and was originally enjoyed in the 19th century in the Tyrolean mountains by forest workers, hunters and foresters. Jagertee is a hot drink and is made from black tea, herbal extracts, fruit schnapps and domestic Inländer rum.
Today “Jagatee” is, according to EU Directive, a product with a protected geographical indication and with the designation that is only permitted for Jagatee produced in Austria.
To gather interesting information on the Jagatee a look into the lexicon.
Our Jagatea recipe: This popular tea with schnapps tastes best with 3 or 4 parts hot water, 1 part Jagatea concentrate and refined according to taste with freshly squeezed lemon or orange juice.
We still make the tea extract ourselves based on ancient knowledge. Selected kinds of black tea with lots of herbs, roots and seeds are set in fine alcohol, tenderly macerated over many months and matured. Our Jagatee is refined only with the best fruit distillate and original Inländer rum, sweetened with a little sugar, meticulously mixed and filled up with care. At Tiroler Kräuterdestillerie, we add no wine to the Jagertee!
Attention! Jagatee must never boil - otherwise the precious aromas and herbal substances will be lost!
