How We Make Cold Brew Tea
After a whole lot of testing, we came up with the perfect iced tea making process. It's all in the simplicity - and of course, the rolled whole leaves.
1. Choose your tea.
The most important bit. Starting with rolled whole leaves means that we can keep the taste and quality of our tea. They're awesome for cold brewing because they slowly release their flavour over time, so we end up with a perfectly smooth iced tea.
2. Cold brew it for 15 hours.
Cold brewing keeps any bitterness at bay - there's no risk of quickly over-brewing or burning your leaves - and it slowly brings out the leaves' natural flavours. After 15 hours, our tea is flavoursome, tasty and ready for the next step.
3. Mix in the good stuff.
Once we have an awesome base, we can get to flavouring. We don't ruin our brewing efforts with dodgy flavourings or overcomplicated combinations - it's all about enhancing the tea flavour and adding a bit of a kick. This one's made with fresh Sicilian lemon juice and sweetened with agave and unrefined cane sugar. Simple and delicious.
