How iced tea is brewed?

In the previous post, we discussed a quick way to make iced tea. Today we're going to talk about two other ways to make iced tea.

Hot Brewed Iced Tea 

In fact, the method of quick brewing iced tea also belongs to hot brewing iced tea. Most people still like to make tea this way to enjoy the taste of the tea leaves. So, what do you need to do?

1. make tea in hot water for 3-5 minutes (time depends on the type of tea you make)

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.

4. enjoy.

There's another way that everyone likes it. Iced tea is sometimes made by 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.

So what exactly does it mean to cold brew iced tea? Cold brew simply means to brew your drink in cold water. Rather than using boiling water, this tea is prepared in cold water.

Brew the tea in cold water and put it in the fridge for 24 hours and enjoy!So easy!

Making cold-brew iced tea leaves you with a crisp, clean and refreshing tasting tea. It also gives the opportunity to really allow the flavors in the tea to fully come out since the tea bags are able to sit in the water for over 6 hours. This gives your iced tea all those delicious subtle flavours.

One reason why many people usually use boiling water to make iced tea is that it’s faster. Depending on one's lifestyle and preferences, both hot and cold-brewed iced teas are healthy ways to drink tea.

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.
