The Lagunitas brewery prepares its first sparkling hard tea

Disorderly TeaHouse is the first hard tea to be freshly brewed with premium guayusa tea leaves handpicked by indigenous farmers in Ecuador. Guayusa [gwahy-yoo-suh] is described as “old energy” and Lagunitas deliberately chosen because of its slightly sweet, mild and never bitter flavor. After selecting only the best guayusa tea leaves, Lagunitas brews tea in-house to give Disorderly TeaHouse its authentic taste. Next, natural fruit flavors are added to give a crunchy finish to Disorderly TeaHouse’s two available varieties: Yuzu Lemon Squeeze and Mixed-Up Berries.

Lagunitas saw the opportunity to create our first hard tea that satisfies people’s growing demand for a healthier alcoholic drink – containing only 100 calories with 0 grams of sugar* and gluten free. Nothing artificial,” said Paige Guzman, Lagunitas’ Marketing Director. “We’ve seen the premium hard seltzer and malt beverage market become so oversaturated, and we wanted to offer an alternative that speaks to the authenticity of our heritage in the craft brewing process and gives consumers a higher offering. range.”

Hard teas are gaining popularity with consumers. In fact, tea grows 50%, which is 8 times faster than full beer.*

It’s a premium, balanced tea taste paired with delicious, thoughtful natural fruit flavors that we think people will love, especially in the morning. warmer seasons are approaching.”

Spill the tea on Disorderly TeaHouse

In truth Lagunitas fashion, the name is inspired by its rebellious nature and its history. In 2005, the brewery received a citation for keeping a “disorderly house” by the California Department of Liquor Control, and the brewery was soon temporarily closed. Disorderly TeaHouse reflects the combination of filler and a traditional teahouse.

Disorderly TeaHouse is another type of infusion that puts a twist on classic tea flavors. Both current strains are earthy and herbal with a hint of flavorful fruit. Yuzu Lemon Squeeze has a hint of aromatic, tangy citrus love of yuzu, while Mixed-Up Berries has a subtly sweet fruitiness of raspberry and blackberry.
