How to Cold Brew your Tea?

Tired of drinking your favorite tea hot? Try cold-brewing your favorite tea, it might taste better when its cold. Cold brewing your tea allows your tea leaves to open up slowly and extracts less caffeine and catechins. What does it means? It means, in terms of flavor, cold brew tea will be less bitter and produce only its original flavors.

Going further, you can play around with the length of time and the type of tea you choose. The longer you let it stay,  more flavor will come out of the tea. Even more, add ingredients to your cold brew tea to enhance the flavors. Few of the ingredients that we like to put in our tea:

  • Mint leaves
  • Citrus zest
  • Muddled berries
  • Honey or other natural sweetener
  • Fruit juice or syrup
  • Frothed milk
