Tea Craft Inspiration: Icarus Brewing’s Liquid Swords

Icarus Brewing released their Liquid Swords, a Japanese style rice lager with yuzu zest and jasmine green tea.



The elements of this beer include:

LAGER: A Japanese style rice lager.

YUZU: The Asian citrus brings a zestiness

JASMINE GREEN TEA: Reviews note that the jasmine fragrance is spot on in its balance, providing the right amount of tea flavor.



Japanese rice lagers provide a solid base for tea flavors, especially jasmine green tea and genmaicha (green tea with toasted rice). Bright Asian fruits like yuzu, lychee are great. Or experiment further afield with passionfruit, guava, or dragon fruit.
