TEA HOW-TO

How to Make Iced Tea with Tea Bags

Craving a freshly brewed glass of iced tea? It may be closer than you think! Learn how to make iced tea at home with teabags. Teabags are a convenient way to brew your favorite refreshing blends with ease.

 


Step By Step 


Step 1 - Heat water

POUR FRESH WATER INTO A KETTLE AND HEAT TO EXACT TEMPERATURE.

We would recommend using low mineral, low chemical, spring or glacier-fed water.

To find the full water temperature instructions please refer to our Steeping Chart.

Heat the water by boiling it. Please do not microwave it, no matter what your Great Aunt Josephine says, as it results in unevenly hot water. Take care not to over-boil or re-boil your water, which results in stale-tasting tea from an imbalance of elements in the water. Water temperature also has a profound impact on infusion quality; for example, unfermented (green) teas can be easily bruised by overly hot water which extracts too many tannic acids, rendering a bitter palate.

 



Step 2 - Add teabags to glass

Following the steeping instructions for the different tea types will yield the difference between a proper balance of flavors, as our blenders intend, and incorrect emphasis on certain flavor profiles of different ingredients.



Step 4 - Pour over ice

POUR STEEPED TEA INTO GLASS.

A larger ice cube results in less dilution as you sip, so you can relax and enjoy your iced tea for longer.
