With the last flushes of summer upon us we like to enjoy our tea on the cooler side. Cold brew tea is traditional to lots of cultures whether it’s Chinese oolong, iced matcha lattes or a classic American iced tea enjoying tea cool is the perfect way to stretch out summer. Although hot tea actually cools you down on a warm day, because it increases your internal cooling mechanisms, sometimes we want a refreshing cooler like our Cold Brew Iced Tea.
Two Ways to Cold Brew
Add one to two teaspoons of tea leaves for every cup of water and allow the tea leaves to float in water and let the container sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to an hour, then put it in the fridge overnight, about eight hours.
The next morning, strain and enjoy.
With a teabag to each cup of hot water infuse the tea for 5 minutes, then strain and place the hot tea in a glass container in the fridge.
Allow to cool for 2 hours until chilled, and enjoy.
Serve with ice, mint, sliced lemons and fruit for a refreshing cold brew! Mix it up by trying different flavours such as our T Tonic range of naturally flavoured teas!
