The Skinny on Iced Tea – The cold fact about ‘Sun Teas’…


The Tip: Refrigerator Iced Tea – don’t do it.

If you must do a cold brew, don’t use the good stuff…

Refrigerator iced tea is another term for a cold brewed iced tea. It is similar to “Sun Tea,” the good thing about tea in the refrigerator; seems the bacterium doesn’t multiply in the fridge as much as in the sun.

Not a Myth – Tea Can Steep in Cold Water!

It is true. Tea just doesn’t steep well in cold water.  What you may not know is that it can take 8 or more hours and can be very bitter. We need to discuss flavor.  You’re missing out on over 25 % of the flavor and that is the difference between really good tea and just average tea. Cloudy, because you are using cold water, you’re teas may not be pretty – it depends on a lot things.  .

Does That Mean This Iced Tea Will Be BAD?  Easy Answer, no there is no such thing as naughty tea… well…

Just don’t use your good stuff to make tea this way. For your iced good teas, I would use a more traditional method of making iced tea, even if it means have to take a nap while it chills out.
