Cold-Brewed Tea

Yes! The answer to your question, when there is cold-brewed coffee, there is also cold-brewed tea. Very much like cold brewing coffee, the process reduces the tannins from releasing into your tea. In other words, less bitterness and astringent flavor comparing to when brewing coffee or tea hot.



I made 2 separate cold-brewed tea: a combination of green tea, lemon and blueberries, green tea and oranges. You can use red tea, earl grey, or a combination of different types of tea. As for the fruits, I would recommend citrus and berries. I am not sure about apples, pears, or stone fruits tho. But I am sure they are worth exploring and experimenting with.



If you are intrigued, you can also add in some spices to your preference as well. Cinnamon, ginger, allspice, etc. The possibilities are endless. This just amps up a whole new level of tea-drinking experience! I really hope you will give this recipe a try and start cold brewing. Cheers!
