I'm not a patient person, nor do I enjoy spending money unnecessarily. Hence, I lean towards homemade wine over beer or liquor.
Tea wine or mead, to be precise. Why do you ask ?
- ingredients are cheaper
- no need to purchase huge amounts of grapes, as required to produce a chardonnay or cabernet.
Wine can be produced using any number of different ingredients. You'd be surprised. Some of which may be in your garden ( dandelions,) or stashed away in the cupboard ( tea.)
Producing tea wine allows you to let your imagination run wild, to be creative, mixing any number of different ingredients together to create certain flavours for a specific palette.
