My experience with hop teas is not good. Vile, astringent, chlorophyll.
So I'll ask you the same question:
Care to go into detail on your "hop Tea" procedure? Amount, type of hop (pellet/whole), temp of water, how long to steep, when you added the tea etc.
I'm sure all these variables play some part. I don't doubt you had crappy results, but I've read too many threads/posts/articles from people who claim to have had good results with teas. Unfortunately, none of these success stories really spell out any kind of actual procedure for making the tea.
