What makes it special?
Chai.P.A is part of a pair of beers that was an experiment in adding different types of tea to beer. For the tea we teamed up with the awesome guys at Eteaket Teas in Edinburgh, who sent us lots of different beers to experiment with. Following several trials with different teas we finally decided upon using a green tea and a chai tea from Eteaket’s range. Chai.P.A uses Eteaket’s Bollywood Dream Chai tea blend which is an intense and spicy tea that is made with a blend of high quality black tea with aniseed, cinnamon, fiery ginger, black pepper, cloves and chicory root.
The resulting beer is something a bit special which has a completely different flavour to anything else we have brewed before.
