Additional Notes:
Tea Beers are any beers using tea(Chai, black, Green, etc) as an adjunct in either the mash, kettle, primary or secondary fermentation, providing obvious (ranging from subtle to intense), yet harmonious, qualities. Clear or hazy beer is acceptable in appearance. To allow for accurate judging, the brewer should list what teas are used, and may also list a classic style of the base beer, or any other ingredients or processes used. Beer entries not accompanied by this information may be at a disadvantage during judging.
