The beer is surprisingly orange in the glass, I expected something thinner and more yellow for some reason. The fizzy head puffs up then disappears. There is some haze and lots of floating yeasties (which I don't mind). The tea is pretty subtle--noticeable in the aroma and just detectable in the taste alongside the herbal hops--I might have liked to have a bit more tea. The malt is nice and sweet, so this is a well-balanced IPA. I'm happy to contribute to tsunami relief and happy to encourage brewers to get engaged the way the collaborators did with this brew. Cheers to them!
