Description

A couple of our brewers agreed with a particular stance excursion to the well known Tianshan Tea City market to encounter the legend themselves. They were overwhelmed. Enlivened, they started testing back home, figuring out how well the sensitive, flower characteristics of these teas worked in mix with certain hop assortments. This magnificent IPA stacked with White Tea is the consequence of that abundant outing and the subsequent experimentation. The astounding aromas and flavor profile of this beer are observer to the delight of experimentation and a demonstration of setting aside a few minutes for side excursions. At Stone Brewing, we have been interested by brewing with tea for quite a while. A fan most loved throughout the years has been our 2011 cooperation: Baird/Ishii/Stone Japanese Green Tea IPA (a "one-off" that was so mainstream we re-fermented it in 2015). Throughout the most recent couple of years, we have proceeded with our fixation on tea, brewing various forms with various kinds of tea on our pilot framework in Escondido just as at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens – Liberty Station and Stone Brewing – Napa. We visited the Tianshan Tea City market in Shanghai, China looking for the ideal tea for this IPA that we had as a top priority. Of the apparent multitude of kinds of tea we tried different things with, White Tea kept coming up as our top pick. The test then was to get the ideal measure of tea in the beer to accomplish agreement and parity, which we have done in this Imperial White Tea IPA.
