There are lots of different types of tea and much higher quality teas than what you'll find in the grocery store. I highly suggest not getting tea bags as they're generally full of dust and fannings. I also dislike "tea bag" flavor from standard bagged teas.

I highly recommend

I drink mainly black tea (usually iced), but the gunpowder (tightly rolled leaves) green teas might be a good bet for strong flavor (such as this one). Avoid jasmine unless you're interested in the scent & taste - it's very strong (but orange peel and jasmine might be interesting).

I'm not sure when the best time to add tea is, but you might want to try "dry hopping" too. You'll get very little caffeine addition without hot water (180 degrees F).

I can't comment on tea beer, just tea.

Been wanting to make one myself thinking bittering hops that are high AA. And lots of tea @ flameout for 3 min. To long and you lose a lot of delicate flavors

Hey there Caseyd,
i've been looking for a green tea beer recipe for little while now and came across this post I was hoping to ask you how it came out and get your recipe. I think a green tea honey mead would be amazing too! I've made a lavender wheat beer using culinary lavender (floral not soapy fragrance) it was delicious. Randy Sprecher from Sprecher Brewery was in Cali at a brew pub I patronize here and tasted my lavender beer and said he wouldn't change anything about it. Very interesting flavor profile & very drinkable. I'll take it!
