The other day I was lucky enough to stumble upon one of the newer (to me, at least) creations from Maine Mead Works. MMW is a Portland, Maine mead maker established in 2007. Since then they have been consistently producing high quality mead. Last year they had a tea mead as well, but it was not bottled as far as I know. But this summer it is a different story! They now have bottled Ram Island iced tea mead! This is an excellent light and fun alternative to beer for tea lovers! It taste like tea. It tastes a little like mead. It has mint and it has honey. What more could you want? I first sampled it at Novare Res where they offered it on there ever-changing and always impressive draught list. I liked it a lot, though I found it a bit minty for my taste.
Sorry the picture quality is not great on these photos. I was in a bar – what do you expect? 🙂
Anyway, if you find yourself in the Portland area this summer keep a look out for this beauty on draught lists or at the Maine Mead Works sampling room.
