2.let your tea cool down.
3.put it in the fridge for 3-5 hours and add some sugar, honey, or fruit you like.
There's another way that everyone likes it.Iced tea is sometimes made by a particularly-long steeping of tea leaves at a lower temperature (one hour in the sun versus 5 minutes at 180–212 °F/80–100 °C), which is known as sun tea.That's right, sun tea.
Cold Brewed Iced Tea.

ICED TEA TIPS
Don’t steep tea for more than 5 minutes. The longer you brew the tea, the more astringent and bitter it’ll get.
Sugar can be adjusted to taste. You can also use simple syrup, honey, maple syrup, or even date syrup.
Iced tea (or ice tea) is a form of cold tea.Make a big batch of iced tea for your next picnic, bbq or just to enjoy on a warm sunny day!
Is Iced Tea Good For You?
One big question I think a lot of people have is whether or not iced tea is good for you. As per usual, my go-to answer with most questions like this is, “It depends.” What does it depend on?
So,don't go to extremes.Overall, you’re just enjoying a refreshing iced tea recipe, iced tea is a perfectly healthy choice.Relax and enjoy!
What are the methods to make iced tea?
Hot brewed (making hot tea and cooling it down in the refrigerator).
Cold brewed (brewed in cold water in the refrigerator for 12 hours).
Is there any other way?
Here it is.Want a super quick iced tea that takes less than 10 minutes to make? Iced-chilled (the quickest way to make iced tea).This is it!
Just try!You can have iced tea in five minutes.
Next time we'll talk about the other two ways and which tea is suitable for making iced tea.
Suitable for the refrigerator
Green tea and light-flavored oolong tea.
Among the six major types of tea, green tea is the most susceptible to spoilage and extra care is required when preserving. Must be sealed and packaged and then placed in the refrigerator.
There is also a clear aroma type of Tieguanyin and Fenghuang Dancong tea, which can be stored in the refrigerator.
Not suitable for the refrigerator.
Pu'er tea, traditional craft oolong tea, aged old tea and white tea.
Puer tea, white tea and black tea, their drinking value is reflected in time aging.Putting this kind of tea in the refrigerator, in addition to the above-mentioned moisture problem, under the low temperature environment of the refrigerator, the activity of biological enzymes in the tea will also decrease, which will affect the conversion efficiency.
Traditional Oolong tea, such as Wuyi Rock Tea, Phoenix Monocotyledon and Roasted Tieguanyin, is already very stable after roasting, and does not need to be stored in the refrigerator.
Jasmine tea, due to its own fragrance, will gradually become thinner if placed in the refrigerator. But there is a special case here,Bi Tan Piao Xue. Bitan Piaoxue added jasmine in the later stage of the production process, and properly placed it in the refrigerator, which is conducive to the preservation of the fragrance of flowers, but the fragrance will also be lost for a long time.
As the case may be.
Studies have shown that temperature has a great influence on the storage quality of red crushed tea. The tea leaves are stored at a lower temperature (0-5 ° C) for one year, the quality components change little, and the moisture only increases by 2.11%.For the tea leaves treated at room temperature, after one year of storage, the reduction of theaflavins content was as much as 18 times higher than that of the low temperature treatment, while the increase of theaflavins was 2.76 times.
This keeps the tea leaves stored at low temperature fresh and mellow, while the tea soup stored at room temperature turns brown and the flavor becomes dull. Since black tea is a fully fermented tea, it is allowed to be stored at room temperature in most cases, and has little effect on the quality of the tea.
If it's not a fridge dedicated to storing tea, it usually has some other food in it. And tea is extremely easy to absorb the taste, so when storing, be sure to seal the tea leaves well.
