Benefits of Cold Brew Iced Tea
Cold brew iced tea offers a myriad of benefits that make it a refreshing and healthy choice for tea lovers. By steeping tea leaves in cold water over an extended period, this brewing method yields a smoother and less bitter flavor profile compared to traditional hot tea. The slow extraction process also preserves the tea's antioxidants, promoting overall well-being. Cold brew iced tea is a great hydrating option, additionally infusing the tea with fruits can upgrade not only the flavor but its health benefits. With its versatility in flavor combinations and ability to cool you down on hot days, cold brew iced tea is a delicious way to stay refreshed and reap the rewards of this invigorating beverage.

These delightful blends, when infused into your summer iced teas, create a symphony of flavors that will make every sip a blissful and refreshing experience.
Super Simple Brewing Techniques for the Perfect Cold Brew
To achieve the perfect cold brew, follow these simple techniques. Begin by combining your favorite loose-leaf tea with cold, filtered water in a glass pitcher or container. Use a ratio of approximately 1 teaspoon of tea per 8 ounces of water. Note you can use more or less if you prefer stronger or lighter tea, adjusting according to taste. We recommend using our Trusty Teabags or making a cheesecloth pouch for larger batches for quicker cleanup, but if you don’t have these things, it isn’t the end of the world. Next, cover the container and let it steep in the refrigerator for 8-12 hours, allowing the flavors to infuse slowly. Once the brewing time is complete, strain the tea leaves, squeeze the brew thoroughly out of the leaves, and customize your brew with optional additions like fresh herbs, fruit slices, or a hint of citrus juice. The result is a smooth and refreshing cold brew iced tea that will tantalize your taste buds and can last refrigerated for days!
