Beer-Enhancing Tea Sachets?

Has anyone tried the Tea Lager beer enhancing tea sachets by Capital Teas? I’m not much of a beer person, but this is in the so-weird-I’ve-got-to-try-it category… Capital Teas recommends certain pairings, too. I’d go for the Stella Artois + Cream Earl Grey Black or Blue Moon + Cherry Blossom Rose Organic.

Ughhh why, what a waste of tea and what a waste of beer! Granted none of the beers they suggest are really too expensive, I just can’t imagine drinking something I want to mess with like that.

I can understand brewing a beer with tea but not brewing tea in beer.

Good thing is this really just looks like a gimmick so I don’t see why you couldn’t use sachets you already have or throw some tea in a t-sac and go that route.

I’m sure my home brewing husband would be appalled at the thought, lol

I’m really curious about tea brewed in beer, if I had more space I’d love to try brewing myself. I saw a really gorgeous beer brewed with rooibos a couple weeks ago. But I can’t imagine it does much of anything or combines very well with flavors if it’s just added for five minutes right before you drink.

Funny! As a huge beer lover and huge tea lover I may have to try it simply because.

I think it would be fun to bring to bar as a conversation starter!I might just find another tea-lover in the room. But, yeah, probably most people would just think I was strange. My hope is that it would make beer MORE tolerable, since I think beer is merely “meh” right now. Of course, I thought that about tea once, too…

I just drank powdered fruit punch gatorade with powdered goat milk last night. It wasn’t bad. In other words… I’m down for trying wacky drinks!

Wacky indeed. Goat milk is good though, especially in a matcha latte!

True! Now I want a matcha latte. That will have to be my next cup this morning!
I had some fresh goat milk the other day from a friend’s goat and it was the most creamy rich milk I have ever had! It didn’t taste goaty at all!

Yeah, the goats milk we get is from a farm with only lady goats and apparently that makes the flavor less goaty. Weird but cool!

I actually tried two of these at the tea festival and they weren’t bad. I had the Stella & Cream Earl Grey Black and Blue Moon & Harbor Breeze. It wasn’t stunning, but it was tasty. The tea flavor made the beer more interesting/gave it layers. The Harbor Breeze also added some sweetness. It really helped that the beers were very light. I have trouble imagining that this could work with a heavier beer.
