Painted Desert Chocolate Stout Shandy

Chocolate stout infuses this spicy black tea with darkly delicious effervescence. Painted Desert’s rich chocolate, chili and cinnamon notes are beautifully enhanced by the bittersweet velvet power of chocolate stout. Intense and light at the same time, this shandy is a grownup summer treat that you will savor to the last drop.

Makes 2 drinks.
Allow 1 hour for tea concentrate.
