Our wine card

Tej is a mead or honey wine that is brewed and consumed in Ethiopia and Eritrea. It is flavored with the powdered leaves and twigs of gesho, a hops-like bittering agent that is a species of buckthorn. Tej is usually homemade. Tej has a deceptively sweet taste that masks its high alcohol content, which varies greatly according to the length of fermentation. The traditional vessel for drinking tej is a rounded vase-shaped container called a berele, which looks like a Florence flask.
