Jagertee (or Jägertee) is an alcoholic punch historically made by mixing "Inländer-Rum" with spiced black tea.

It is served warm and is typically consumed during winter in the cold parts of Central Europe. According to EC Regulation 110/2008, Annex III, No. 32, it is a Protected Designation of Origin reserved for the beverage made in Austria.

Therefore, varieties made in Germany are sold under names like Hüttentee ("hut tea") or Förstertee ("forester tea").

Ingredients for 1 cup:

  • 1/8 litre hot, strong black tea
  • 1 shot each of white wine, fruit schnapps and rum
  • Rock sugar (Kandis)

Mix the tea with the alcohol and heat carefully, but do not bring to the boil. Add broken rock sugar and serve in ceramic cups.
