Cold-Brewed Iced Tea

Last week on Twitter I heard about cold-brewed iced tea. See kids, Twitter can be educational! It seemed so simple and brilliant all at the same time. I really, really love iced tea. I order it 95% of the time when we eat out for dinner. It’s refreshing and if you like it unsweetened like me, it’s guilt-free. I rarely make it at home, though, because of the whole process. Not that it’s hard, but once I’ve heated up the water, timed the steeping of the leaves and put it in the fridge to cool for way too long…I’m not thirsty for iced tea anymore. This method takes just a few minutes and the results are spectacular. The tea is smooth and not bitter because the cold water gently releases the flavor from the tea leaves. Is there some sort of prize I can hand out to the person that discovered this? Seriously.

  1. When I was a kid we’d make cold brewed ice tea and there was often a pitcher sitting in the sun on my aunt’s porch. These days I can’t be bothered. Why? I don’t know. Maybe I should give it a shot again.
