It’s official! Zealong Tea Estate and Good George launched their collaboration High Tea Amber Ale today at an exclusive event at Zealong Tea Estate.
The two award-winning Hamilton-based beverage producers, have pooled their talent, expertise and innovation to bring a novel tea-infused beer to the market.
The HIGH TEA AMBER ALE is a perfect fit for both Zealong Tea Estate and Good George, according to Zealong’s Marketing Manager, Sen Kong. “There were a number of trials before we finally decided on this recipe. We settled on using a combination of Zealong Black and Zealong Dark Oolong teas, to add a roasted char flavour which pairs nicely with the sweet rich malt profile of the brown ale and gives the brew a mild tea sweetness”.
Brew Master Brian and Blend Master Amy explained how they made this match made in heaven (aka Hamilton!), and showed guests how to taste the beer, before a special beer-inspired Brewers High Tea was served.
Good George High Tea Amber Ale is available now at the Zealong Tea House, or at Good George Dining Hall, and in select supermarkets and liquor stores.
