DC loves its summer beach trips to Ocean City, so DCers will especially crave this OC-crafted and inspired drink that comes in a Boardwalk pack.

Founded in Ocean City, MD, (and backed by Anheuser-Busch since late 2021), Hoop Tea is a line of flavored spiked iced tea that comes in Original, Mango, Watermelon, and Peach Flavors.

Not only does a lower ABV of 5% make Hoop Tea an ideal sip for day drinking and summer celebrations, but we think the Watermelon is particularly refreshing.

Fun fact — the name Hoop Tea was inspired by brand founder Danny Robinson’s 1966 Volkswagen bus, which has become the company’s unofficial mascot.
