Simple Steps for Brewing Iced Tea

Here are the simple steps for brewing iced tea;

  • Select what you are going to brew, an herbal infusion, Rooibos or any type of tea (white, black, green, oolong or Pu'erh) all can be served cold its all a matter your taste.

  • Some of our favorites are;

    Herbal - Raspberry Rose Petal, Hibiscus Punch, Organic Macadamia Nut Rooibos, Organic Lemon Honeybush all naturally caffeine free and delicious cold.

    Teas - Orange Blossom Oolong, Passion Fruit black tea and Mandarin Orange green tea, all delightful over ice.

  • Don't complicate it, brewing tea to ice is just like brewing tea to serve hot. You are only going to use slightly more tea leaves, a heaping teaspoon instead of a level teaspoon, and add ice to your glass.
  • Heat your water, boiling for herbs, Rooibos and black tea under a boil for green and oolong tea - follow our directions on the back of each package - add tea leaves to your brewing vessel, pour hot water over top of the leaves and allow to brew - again following the instructions provided -
  • Once the tea is brewed strain the leaves off and allow to cool. When the tea has reached room temperature pour over ice and serve.
  • I would like to suggest that you try your freshly brewed tea without sugar or additives first. You may find, like so many other people that freshly brewed tea does not require the same doctoring up.
