How To Make Cold Brewed Tea

Forget all the fuss and the specialized tea-brewing equipment. Cold brewed tea is the easiest way to make iced tea. All you need is premium full leaf oolong tea, room temperature water, a pitcher, a regular kitchen strainer and a refrigerator!

Here is a simple 3-step recipe for cold-brewing perfect oolong tea:

1. Measure 1.5 teaspoons of premium full leaf oolong tea, or 1 teaspoon of fresh jasmine green tea, or 2 tablespoons of rare black teaput the tea leaves in the pitcher and fill with 1 quart of room temperature water. For the Oolong Sachets, use 1 sachet for 1 quart of room temperature water.

2. Put the pitcher in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours or overnight.
(For a stronger flavor, leave the pitcher of tea at room temperature for 1 hour before putting in the refrigerator.)

3. Strain the tea leaves with the strainer, pour over ice and enjoy!   

Cold-brewed tea does need to steep for 6-8 hours, so be sure to prepare it the night before. That way the refreshing tea will be ready before you get thirsty the next day. Premium oolong tea makes the most refreshing and smooth iced tea you have ever tried, without any bitterness. You can drink it straight or sweeten it with a little bit of honey.

    I’m restricted on how much caffeine I can have, very little. I noticed you mentioned cold brew tea has less caffeine than hot brew. Is it a significant amount? I sure miss drinking iced tea, and I love oolong tea although I’ve never had it cold. I’m anxious to try it if possible. Thank you.
