Time for an Iced Tea?

April 12, 2018

Time for an Iced Tea?

To celebrate today’s gorgeous sunny day, with highs of up to 28 degrees (!), we thought it would be a great idea to make you aware of just how easy it is to brew some refreshing cold-brewed or iced tea!

Enjoy sipping on refreshing tea in the blazing sunshine... bliss.

Cold-brewed tea

INGREDIENTS

1 teaspoon loose-leaf tea per 6 to 8 ounces of water, depending on your preferred strength

Next, add in some sliced lemon, fresh sprig of mint, sweetener of choice, and sliced cucumber; cucumbers help with the fresh taste!

INSTRUCTIONS

Put your favourite loose tea into your pitcher.

Pour in some cold water (for desired strength).

Cover the pitcher and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.

Steep white or green tea for 6 to 8 hours; steep black or oolong tea for 8 to 12 hours.

Once your time is up, strain the loose-leaf tea out of the pitcher by pouring the tea through a fine mesh sieve.

Serve in a glass instead of a cup, it’ll look and taste of summer!

Iced Tea

INGREDIENTS

3-5 bags of Ceylon or Keemun teas

Lemmon

Sugar

Ice

METHOD

In a small pan or pot, bring 2 cups (480 ml) of water to a bubbling boil, turn off the heat once it reaches a good boiling point.

Then you need to add 3-5 bags of Ceylon or Keemun tea (black tea) these two types of black tea tend to work best because they won't turn cloudy when they're left to stand!

Leave the teabags in the hot water for 5 minutes, no longer or less than 5 minutes; if you leave them in for longer, the tea will be too bitter! If you leave them in for less time than 5 minutes, then the tea will be too weak.

Pour the tea into a pitcher. Wait 5-10 minutes for it to cool down.

Dilute this tea mixture when you go to drink it as it will be a strong mixture of tea; do this by pouring 2 cups (480 ml) of cold water into the tea to make it less strong.

Stir the mixture for best results!

Refrigerate the mixture until it's chilled for 2-3 hours.


Pour the tea into a tall glass that is filled with ice.

Squeeze a slice of lemon into the tea and add a sprig of mint to the top.
