hop tea suggestions

Post by OliverAmelia » Sun Dec 17, 2017 9:35 am

Hi, I don't know if this is the correct place to ask..
I would like to combine different types of hops to make tea instead of beer.
Could you please give me a list of hops that are not bitter?

I read on internet a combination of hops can resemble the taste of hemp. For example chinook plus another hop. Could you possibly send me some suggestions?

Thank you

I don't know of any hops that are not bitter, though you can see there relative bitterness by looking at their %aa (% alpha acid). The lower the %aa, the less bitter, so hops at 12%aa will be very bitter and at 3%, less so. One thing you may be able to find are aged hops, that have lost much of their bitterness with time. Or, you could try buying hops and aging them, but be aware that hop flavor changes with age, too.
