Cold Brewed Tea
Cold brewing loose tea is simple, tasty, and a great way of extracting the goodness of whole leaf tea. The slower extraction process of cold brewed tea results in a flavorful infusion where you don’t run the risk of bitter oversteeping. The same cold brewing method works well for many loose leaf teas, including green teas, white teas, yerba mate, as well as some oolongs and herbals.
It’s so simple to make fresh iced tea. You can cold brew loose leaf tea in the refrigerator over night using cold water and an iced tea pitcher, such as Steep & Chill. And now, you can cold brew tea on-the-go by using our new Steepware® tea filter designed for water bottles – Steep & Go. You can download our free ebook, DIY Cold Brew Tea Lifestyle Guide, for information on how to cold brew tea, the health benefits of cold brewing, and fresh recipe ideas.
HOW TO COLD BREW TEA ON-THE-GO
Make cold brewed tea in a water bottle with our Steep & Go filter or our Cold Brew Bottle:
- Add 1 Cold Infusions tea pack or 2-3 pinches of other loose leaf tea to your water bottle.
- Screw on correct side of adapter ring for your water bottle. (You may need to disassemble your Steep&Go and flip the adapter ring over, or try both sides of the 2nd adapter, to find the right fit for your bottle. The default adapter position fits Dasani® bottles, other side fits European bottles like Evian® & Volvic®.)
- Insert filter tube.
- Tighten sport cap onto adapter.
- Shake to mix leaves.
- Wait 10 min, pop lid & enjoy!
Alternatively, make cold brewed tea in the refrigerator with Steep & Chill:
- Place 2 heaping Tablespoons of loose leaf tea in Steep & Chill tea infuser with fresh cold water in the pitcher.
- Steep for at least 2 hours in the fridge, or for 10-30 minutes at room temperature.
- Drink it cold without any ice for undiluted flavor, or serve over ice. Enjoy!
