Cold Brew Tea is a simple method of steeping any type of tea overnight in the refrigerator. The slow infusion produces a smooth, full flavor without the bitterness of over-steeping and still retains all of the healthy antioxidants found in tea.
PREPARATION TIME: 5 mins
INFUSION TIME: Overnight
- 1 teaspoon loose-leaf tea per 6 to 8 ounces of water (preferably spring water or filtered water), depending on desired strength.
- Optional add-ins: sweetener of choice.
1. For the best flavor, dump the loose tea into your pitcher. Pour in room temperature or cold water.
2. Cover the pitcher and refrigerate.
Steep White, Green or Yellow Tea for 6 to 8 hours;
Steep black or oolong tea for 8 to 12 hours. 3.
Once your time is up, strain the loose-leaf tea out of the pitcher by pouring the tea through a fine mesh sieve (for best results, cover the sieve with a cheesecloth or paint-straining bag used exclusively for food products). Discard the tea. 4. Serve tea as is or with any add-ins of your choice. Tea will keep well, covered and refrigerated, for 3 to 5 days.
