I'm gonna brew a green tea Belgian witbier. The recipe is as follows
3 lb weat DME
3 lb light DME
1 oz bittering hops (probably cascade since that's what I have already)
.25 oz flavor hops
.25 aroma hops
Belgian witbier style yeast

2 oz Chinese green tea in secondary

Comments? Suggestions?

That looks pretty good, you could also consider .25 lb of flaked oats. Just make sure with the Cascade that you keep the IBU's in check. Wit's are pretty low and 1.5oz of Cascade may be pushing it.
