Hard Iced Tea?

Recommended Posts

Alright, weird request here. I was sitting at the computer on the Borg and my wife and friend were talking about tea. Asked me if it was possible to make a hard tea. Anybody heard of this? I thought maybe some tea, sugar, lactose and champagne yeast? Basically a hard cider, but with tea. How weird is this?

Seems like boiling the tea leaves long enough to sterilize them would bring out a lot of tannins.

What about making some hard lemonaide, bottling in those tiny wine bottles from the LHBS and mixing with fresh brewed tea? Carbing might be a challenge if they want it fizzy though. :cheers:

Hard "iced tea" really isn't tea. It's actually different flavors added to a malt liquor to make it taste like iced tea. Look into finding an artificial flavoring that tastes like tea then try adding it to a pale ale and experiment.
