I think it turned out good.
Its light and smooth.

4oz Aromatic Malt
Steep for 20 minutes at 150degrees

60 minute boil
6lb dme lite
3oz Hallertau Hops

After 45 minutes 1oz Czech Saaz Hops
Irish Moss
1lb clover honey (steam in a bowl to make it liquid)
4 Preimum Green Tea bags in 1 qt water steeped for 12 minutes.
Pour green tea into honey so it pours into wart easily.

After 58 minutes
1oz Czech Saaz Hops

Yeast Kolsch.

In 2ndary fermentor chill for 2+ week at about 48 degrees and let age for 1 month after kegging or bottling.

What do you think the green tea added to the flavor?

Its very hard to taste. When I make again I'll add 2 more tea bags.

I want to gradually bring up the tea flavor instead of making it too strong for starters.

I would be interested in your evaluation of the flavor of your beer using green tea. Green tea provides 2 common off-flavors often found to be objectionable in beer. They are a green grassy note and astringency. Compared to a similar "control" beer, do you notice these notes in your test brew??

its why I used pilsner and aromatic malt since its a light flavor any how.

there is a very faint green tea taste, but its very light.

As far as astringency, I steep the green tea for only 12 minutes then remove the tea bags and not wring them out.
