I recently thought about looking for hard tea recipes. I love to brew beer but I do not have a lot of time as of late, or money. I haven't done and research on hard tea yet, but I ALWAYS make iced tea in the summer.
My recipe goes:
12 Lipton Tea bags
1/4 cup Agave nectar
2 quarts water.
1. Melt the agave in a little bit of hot water.
2. Pour cold filtered water over tea bags till full to 2 qaurts.
3. Let steep and chill overnight with added lemon of lime.
My thought was to just add more agave to bring the brix up, then add yeast the following day. I have an abundance of agave from where I work, and thats why I use it.
Sometimes I throw in different flavoring tea bags, like Lemon rosehip or blueberry.
