Cold Brew Iced Green Tea Recipe
This recipe brews green tea leaves or green tea bags into a deliciously refreshing iced tea. We’ll steep the leaves in cold water for a few hours as opposed to hot water. Cold brewing is the term for this technique.
Although the process is still straightforward, the total brewing time is longer because cold water takes longer to develop flavor.
- 3 teaspoons loose-leaf green tea
- 3 cups water
- Fruit (optional)
- Add cold spring water to a sizable, inert container. We advise using a glass jar, such as a mason jar.
- Put the pitcher in the refrigerator after incorporating the tea bags or leaves. Optional fruit or seasonings should be added.
- Allow the tea to steep for 8 to 10 hours to develop flavor.
- Take out the tea leaves or tea bags. Simple sugar or another type of liquid sugar should be used to sweeten. Cold water will not completely dissolve sugar granules.
- On a hot day, serve over ice cubes and take pleasure.
Add Mint Or Fruit
Try adding a few mint leaves to your pitcher before adding the water to your brew to give it an even more refreshing flavor.
If you’re in the mood for fruit, put some pineapple, peach, or guava slices in the pitcher before the water. And when you’ve finished, be sure to enjoy the tangy marinated fruit at the bottom of your glass! Please consider looking at our recipe for strawberry iced tea if you need more ideas.
