How To: Cold Brew Tea

Summer is heating off with cold brew

(tea?? yes, tea)
 First off, why cold brew tea?

Two major reasons:
1. Time Saving
We love to make a large pitcher of iced tea on the weekends that we can enjoy throughout the week without much effort when we're short on time and don't want to make a single serving. It only takes a few minutes and ends up saving you so much time. Future you will thank you!

2. Taste
The slow and gentle process of cold brewing tea often mellows the tannins in green and black teas, offering a smoother and more delicious tea than brewingdouble strength and pouring over ice! Trust us on this!
We spent a while testing recipes and landed on the following for best results. Try it out and taste the difference yourself.

How to cold brew your tea:

1. Add 21g (about half of a bag) of tea to a large pitcher. 
2. Pour 32oz of water heated to 165F over the tea leaves (this step is essential for killing off any bacteria that may or may not be present on the leaves). Allow it to steep for 1 minute.
3. Pour another 32oz of cold water into the tea. Store in the fridge for 8 hours.
4. Once tea is done steeping, carefully pour the tea through a fine mesh strainer to strain out the leaves, and into a new container.
5. Store in the fridge for up to a week. When ready to use, add ice, and milks/sweeteners of choice. Easy as that! Enjoy :)
