How To Brew The Perfect Iced Tea

Although I am more of a hot tea guy myself, nothing can compare to the refreshing burst of hydration that comes from a tall glass of fresh brewed iced tea. To make it even better, iced tea is very simple to make at home. You'll just need a couple of things:
 
2) Brewing accessory, such as a tea infuser or french press
3) Hot water and a few ice cubes
 
There are many ways to make iced tea and everyone has a favorite method. We recommend brewing the tea hot first because the heat extracts the majority of the benefits from the tea in a short amount of time. Now that you have everything you need, let's get started!
 
1) Heat the water to the correct temperature found on the back of our packaging. The water should be lightly steaming for green tea and close to boiling for herbal tea. Check out our blog here on correct tea temperatures.
2) Add 2 tsp (or more if you want a lot of flavor) for every 8 oz. of tea you plan to make.
3) Allow the tea to steep for the recommended time, being careful not to over-steep it.
4) Pour the hot brewed tea into a pitcher with ice. Use caution if the pitcher is glass.
5) Simply pour your fresh tea into a glass with ice and enjoy!
 
For an extra special treat, try adding fresh fruits to the tea and allow it to infuse overnight. Some fresh raspberries and a squeeze of lemon will take your tastebuds on a blissful journey.
 
We hope you enjoy your iced tea! Feel free to share your own recipes with us in the comments below. Cheers.
