Nudge over cold brew coffee - COLD BREW TEA is gaining traction
Could cold brewing be the new game-changer to making iced tea? Cold-brewing tea is a much slower and gentler steeping process than the popular version of just pouring over ice. Cold brewing is when tea leaves, leaf infusers or teabags are left to steep in cold water over a long period of time so that the flavours infuse, creating a sweeter and smoother tasting ice tea.
What are the benefits of cold brew?
Cold-brew tea has less caffeine than its hot brewed cousin due to the deliberate, steady steeping process. The process is just as easy as the traditional method; however, it is a lengthy one taking at least 12 hours.
How To Make A Cold Brew
Put tea and water in a pitcher or glass container. Use cool or room temperature water. No need to boil water when it comes to cold brew tea. The best-tasting tea is made with the best water, so use filtered water. Cover the pitcher and put it in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. Just a note that most teas should be cold brewed for at least 12 hours EXCEPT for green teas. Green teas like sencha only need to be cold brewed for 3 hours. Strain out tea leaves and enjoy!
