Keep it Chill With Cold Brew Tea

Keep it Chill With Cold Brew Tea 1

When you make iced tea, you hot brew a tea or blend and then add ice to cool it down. Although delicious, this method can be a hit or miss depending on how long the tea leaves are steeped. In contrast, cold brew tea is a simpler alternative and is never in contact with heat during the brewing process. Instead, the tea leaves are steeped in cold or room temperature water for an extended period.
