Ice Brewing is the perfect method when traveling or camping when access to a kettle or hot water is limited. When traveling and staying in an hotel, bring your favourite tea, and all you’ll need is ice from the hotel’s ice machine or you can also COLD brew tea! <- check out our COLD BREW blog post for more info.
Iced brewed tea results in a sweeter, milder taste, without the addition of sugar (hot water tends to produce a more bitter tasting brew than cold water) & reduces caffeine as compared to brewing in hot water. When traveling, it’s great to drink teas that are high in antioxidants and the amino acid, L-Theanine that helps with mental focus and for you to feel calmer, as well as aid in overcoming jet lag without high amounts of caffeine. Try DRAGONWELL, SENCHA.
HOW TO ICE BREW:
Place 1 tsp of tea in glass with ice. Leave on counter. Once ice is mostly melted, strain & then the tea is ready to drink!
Perfect to add to a travel mug or thermos to stay hydrated & avoid high sugary drinks when on-the-go!
