Tettnanger A was created in the 1970’s at the University of Hohenheim in Germany via clonal selection from the original Tettnanger hop. Sibling to Tettnanger B, Tettnanger A was originally thought to contain higher alpha percentages though testing in the US has brought this into question. It is said to have a pleasant, continental-style aroma and like it’s parent, is thought to be a descendant of Czech variety, Saaz.
