Jägertee, also known as "Jagatee", is a typical Tyrolean (Austria) specialty that 19th century foresters, hunters and rangers used to drink.

Jägertee is a hot drink originally made with black tea, herbal extracts, fruit alcohol and the "Inländer" national rum.

Here is a variant recipe that is made with kirsch (cherry brandy) also popular in Alsace, France.
