cold brew tea
simple. easy. very tasty.
Have you ever tried cold brew tea? 🥶 There is some evidence that cold brew tea might offer even more benefits than regular hot tea and even iced tea! Sometimes your tea might have a bitter or astringent taste, and that can be due to a few things. Maybe you added too much tea, or steeped it too long ,or used water that was too hot. If you struggle with creating the perfect flavor of tea, you might try making cold brew!
Making cold brew is easy! Just add 5-7 tablespoons of tea to the infuser in the pitcher, fill the pitcher all the way up with room temperature water, sweeten with honey, if you desire, and set in the fridge for several hours (brew time recommendations below). After it's done brewing, simply pour over ice, and enjoy!
Here's how to cold brew each type of tea + some recommendations from us:
(black, green, white, oolong pu erh, herbal)
Black Tea: Steep 8-10 hours.
Green Tea: Steep 6-8 hours.
White Tea: Steep 6-8 hours.
Oolong Tea: Steep 8-10 hours.
Pu Erh Tea: Steep 10-12 hours.
Herbal Tea: Steep 12-14 hours.
Cold-brew tea is a lot smoother because the flavor is slowly extracted over several hours. People that try cold brew tea say that it brings out flavors that they had never tasted before when they brewed it with hot water. In addition to a smoother flavor, fewer tannins may also help you absorb more iron from food. 🤯
SWEETEN UP THIS SUMMER 😋
