📕 What is a Jagertee?

Jagertee, Jägertee or Jagatee means Hunter's tea and Jaga is the local Tyrolean (regional Austrian German) word for Jäger in German.

My conclusion is that in the old times, Hunter's used to having a Jagatee before going out into the windy and cold wild and taking down some forest animals.

We have a local dark Rum in Austria called Stroh and together with some red wine and local fruit Schnapps, they form the alcoholic base of the drink.

The Jagatee is a well-kept Tyrolean and Bavarian recipe, and none of the locals there will like to share the recipe.

You will be surprised to know that the Jagatee also includes Oranges.

It resembles another hot alcoholic winter beverage, the Glühwein, in some ways

🥣 How to serve it?

Sometimes Jagertee is simply served in a glass or in a cup. Either one works.

It's not a fancy drink, it's a quick aprés ski or quick-warm-me-up beverage.

You can add some garnish, such as an orange slice.

🇦🇹 Jagertee on a Skiing Vacation in Austria

Picture this!

You and a group of friends are skiing in the Kitzbühel alps, having a blast on the slopes at around 1500 m altitude, and after some time you decide to take a break in an inn.

The mountain peaks are covered with snow, the air is chilled and hard to breathe, it's time to warm up those bones from inside!

At the Lounge of the inn, its space is warmed up by the blazing fireplace.

The sound of wood cracking in the flames, and there are a bunch of other guests chatting loudly in all kinds of languages.

You and your people make yourself comfortable and are about to order.

The waitress, dressed in a local Trachten dress, comes over with a big smileready to take the first orders and suggests a hot warming tea which she calls Jagatee.

No doubt you are all game and end up with the Black boozy tea.

A sip and you can taste a combination of flavors.

The first thing you will recognize is the Rum and you will swear that some type of spice is included and some black tea, but that's about it.

You are trying to make out more ingredients, yet you give up quickly and let yourself go.

You and your friends are obviously enjoying it, and you order another round, and another.

Chances are you will order the third round and after that you won't even remember how many more rounds you had ordered

Yes, the Jagertee is smooth, it seems just like any other drink, but it will take you into another world, that I can guarantee you!

The "secret" little drink mixture turned you all into tipsy happy people, without that you realized what was happening.

The next day you will try to remember the drink's name but none of you can, it was one hell of a hot alcoholic beverage!
