3 Methods for Simple, Perfect Brewing!
For delicious hot tea that is practically perfect in every way, follow this simple guide!
1 teaspoon of tea per cup of hot water is all you need to brew a tea-rrific cup!
“LAZY” Iced Tea
This simple cold brew method is the usual way we drink our tea in the summertime at home! Note: ratios of tea to water can absolutely be adjusted to suit your personal preference.
Add 1 teaspoon of tea per 8 oz cool water to a big ‘ol mason jar, and stick it in your fridge overnight. Yep, that’s it!
Strain your iced tea in the morning by 1: pouring through a strainer, 2: shifting the lid of the mason jar a bit and using that to keep the leaves at bay, or 3: pouring slowly so the leaves remain in the jar. Best enjoyed over ice, and extra delicious if shaken with crushed ice in a cocktail shaker before serving!
QUICK ICED TEA
Pictured here is our Apricot Delight turned snow cone - a highly recommended variation if conditions allow!
Add 2 teaspoons of tea per 8oz of hot water, steep according to our Brew Guide above, add ice to dilute & cool!
Reminder: Hot water with Black tea (2-3 min) Rooibos (3-5 min) and Herbal (4-6 min) and not-quite-boiling water for Oolong (3-4 min) Green Tea (2-3 min) and White (2 min)
Another Reminder: Make your tea stronger my adding more leaves, not more time! Too much steeping time with your tea (especially green and white) will cause your tea to turn bitter.
