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 2 teaspoons of premium full leaf oolong tea, or 1 teaspoon of fresh jasmine green tea, or 2 tablespoons of rare black tea, put the tea leaves in the pitcher and fill with 1 quart of room temperature water.
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.
