Making iced tea: the standard method

Broadly speaking, there are two ways to make iced tea with loose leaf tea. First, we discuss the so-called standard method. The standard method is very similar to the way you brew regular tea. You take a portion of organic loose tea leaves and let it steep in hot water. How hot the water should be and how long you should steep the leaves depends on the type of tea you choose. So follow the directions on the packaging. Make sure that you use twice as much tea as normal. This will ensure an ultimate taste experience. After brewing the tea, let the tea cool down. Add ice cubes and your healthy iced tea is ready!

Making iced tea: the cold brew method

In addition to the standard way, you can also make a so-called cold brew iced tea. The difference is that you have to prepare this tea with cold water instead of hot water. You add about one and a half to two teaspoons of organic loose tea to a pitcher of cold water. The next step is to place it in the fridge and let it steep. The steeping time of the tea depends on the type of tea you have used. Keep the iced tea in the fridge for 4 to 6 hours for green and white tea. Black tea and herbal tea needs to steep for 8 to 12 hours. The longer you steep the tea, the more soft or sweet taste you get. You can enrich the flavor of your tea by adding fruit or sugar. You can also add ice cubes to make your tea more refreshing.

Why is homemade iced tea healthy?

If you make iced tea according to one of the above methods, you are assured of a delicious and healthy drink. You are using a healthy and simple base of organic loose tea leaves and you can add extra healthy ingredients yourself. For example, you decide whether you would like to add sugar or not. You keep the iced tea extra healthy by only adding natural ingredients such as honey, ginger, or mint. The choice is huge. Choose the iced tea you like!
