Ethiopian tej, often referred to as "honey wine," is a traditional beverage deeply rooted in Ethiopian culture and history. This exquisite drink is crafted from the finest quality honey, making it a unique and cherished part of Ethiopian culinary heritage.

The process of making tej begins with carefully selecting the honey, which plays a vital role in determining the flavor and character of the final product. Ethiopian tej makers take pride in sourcing honey from local beekeepers, ensuring its authenticity and supporting sustainable practices.

Once the honey is acquired, it undergoes a fermentation process that can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. This natural fermentation process allows the honey's sugars to convert into alcohol, resulting in a sweet, yet slightly tangy taste profile. The length of the fermentation period contributes to the complexity and depth of flavors found in tej.

Traditionally, tej is brewed in special vessels called bereles, which are large, clay pots. These pots are meticulously crafted and often adorned with intricate designs, showcasing the artistry and craftsmanship of Ethiopian artisans. The berele not only serves as a vessel for brewing tej but also adds to the overall aesthetic appeal of this beloved beverage.

One of the most intriguing aspects of tej is its effervescence. When poured into a glass, tej displays a sparkling appearance, reminiscent of champagne or sparkling wine. This natural carbonation further enhances the drinking experience, adding a delightful fizz to each sip.

In terms of taste, Ethiopian tej offers a harmonious blend of sweetness and acidity. The honey's natural flavors shine through, providing a rich and luscious base, while the fermentation process adds a pleasant tartness that balances the sweetness. The result is a refreshing and well-rounded beverage that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with traditional Ethiopian cuisine.

Tej is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages in Ethiopian history dating back to the era of Queen Sheba of Ethiopia.

The traditional way of brewing Tej in Ethiopia varies from region to region, but the three main ingredients steering the ship of tej making are raw honey, water, and Gesho.
