Cold Brew Tea
Cold-brew tea is an iced tea that is made by infusing the tea leaves in cold water rather than hot water or boiling water. Since cold water doesn’t develop flavors as easily as hot water, the steeping time is significantly longer when making iced tea using the cold brew method. It’s similar to making sun tea, but instead of placing the tea in direct sunlight, the cold-brewed tea steeps in a large pitcher in the refrigerator. Cold-brew tea can be made using tea bags or loose tea, though loose leaf tea generally offers better flavors compared to tea bags.
