Cold-Brew Iced Tea: The cold brew method takes longer but yields a lighter and crisper flavour than the traditional boiling water method. Give this method a try if you’re not in a rush.
Use 1 headed teaspoon of tea leaves per 8 ounces of cold water.
Infuse the leaves for about 1 to 3 hours in the refrigerator, depending on the blend.
It’s best if you can taste the tea every 15 mins or so to make sure the tea infusion doesn’t become bitter. If you’ve steeped too long, strain leaves immediately and you can add some sugar.
You’ll want to experiment with different tea varieties and with each variety the steeping time will also vary according to your taste.
