How To Brew The Perfect Cup Of Iced Tea

On a hot day, Iced Tea is not only a must-have refreshment, but healthy as well. It is enjoyed by people from all walks of life. In preparing iced tea, we frequently rely on readymade packets that we buy from stores. Most of us would be surprised to find out that Iced Tea can simply be made at home, which is a great convenience. As an added bonus, homemade Iced Tea is healthier because it does not contain any of the additives found in readymade packets. Follow our simple recipe and you will be on your way to making great, refreshing, and healthy Iced Tea.
 
Using Nature's Tea Maker:
1. Bring 1 cup of cold water to a boil.
2. Add 4-6 teaspoons of your favorite tea. Mix, cover and let stand for 5 minutes only.
(If you leave it longer than that you might came the tea too bitter)
3. Strain the concentrated tea into a pitcher.

4. Add 4 cups of cold water to the pitcher and stir.
5. Add iced cubes and stir.

Brewing Tip:
Brewing times vary by the type of tea. For example, Herbal tea should be brewed 4-6 minutes and green tea should be brewed for 1 minute. For a stronger cup of tea, add more tea leaves to your brew rather than steeping it beyond the recommended time. Otherwise you may produce a bitter taste in your tea.

Brewing temperatures also vary by the type of tea. White and green teas should be brewed at 175ºF, oolong and black teas should be brewed at 195ºF, and herbal teas should be brewed at 208ºF. However, make note that boiling for extended period of time reduces the amount of oxygen in the water crucial for flavor extraction.

Easy Temperature Guide:
For Black, Herbal, and Pu’erh Tea allow the water to come to a rolling boil then pour over tea leaves
For Oolong Tea, let the boiled water cool down for 1 minute before pouring over tea leaves
For Green and White Tea, let boiled water cool approximately 2 minutes before pouring over tea leaves
