Cold Brewing Tea is one of the easiest ways to make refreshing iced tea that simply involves steeping tea leaves in cold or room temperature water.
Cold Brewed iced tea creates a sweeter, milder taste, without the addition of sugar (hot water tends to produce a more bitter tasting brew than cold water) and it’s an easy method for kids if you prefer they avoid hot liquids. Tea that is cold brewed has lower caffeine than tea brewed using hot water but there is still the health benefits of antioxidants and the amino acid, L-Theanine that helps stimulate mental focus while also helping you feel calmer.
Cold Brewing is the perfect method when traveling or camping when access to a kettle or hot water is limited. When camping, place tea in cooler after adding cold water or you can also brew tea in ICE! Check out our blog post about that for more info.
HOW TO COLD BREW:
Use 1 tsp. tea for every cup of water. Pour cold water over tea. Refrigerate 2 hrs or overnight, then strain & serve.
