My Bottom Line:
Lemongrass and various citrus fruit gleefully scent this juicy, tart and dry summer quencher. An eclectic number which does not recall any sort of tea most people have ever had.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slim film of foam covers the light yellow.
-Our program said this was brewed by Chinese black tea, not green tea...
-The spicy citrus component is dominant and combined with the nearly anemic body makes this extremely easy to down.
-A light weizen yeast character roams in the background.
-A drop of milk in your tea, sir? Uh, sure.
Bottle; best before April 2009.

Little head, orange-yellow beer with green sheen. Sherry-ish, vegetal aroma and lots of citrus in the nose - but tea? Tannines, and their astringency appear in taste & mouthfeel. Again mainly citrus flavours. Apart from the astringency, quite sour. Not great, but consistently OK.
