What is the benefit of iced tea? Is cold iced tea good for you? Cold iced tea may have some advantages over hot tea. Good can also be subjective on the matter, so long as you are not putting an excessive amount of sugar in your drink or letting a hot tea get too cold. Iced tea may have less caffeine than its hot tea counterpart and may actually have more antioxidants, this is due to the tea taking longer to extract in a cold brew process. The taste of the teas will also differ on whether or not the tea has been steeped in hot water or cold. Hot tea generally will have a more bitter taste to where cold brewed iced tea will have had time to steep and be a little truer to the flavor of the leaves. Of course, there is always the option of store-bought iced tea, however, there is generally no telling how many antioxidants made it through in their own brewing process. To get the most bang for your buck you are best to make your own iced tea recipes with your favorite sweetener. Fruits do well with this because you not only get the natural sweetness from the fruit, but also some of the health benefits from it as well. Adding a half of cup of lemonade to a half cup of iced tea is also a wonderful way to sweeten up your tea and give you a delicious Arnold Palmer.
How to make a cold brew iced tea with tea bags? Iced Tea Recipe - Making your own iced tea at home doesn't have to be too complex or daunting, the English Tea Store has got your back. This iced tea recipe is the perfect summer drink. It's refreshing, delicious, and easy to make. All you need is a teabag or teabags depending on how much you want to make, water, sugar/ lemon, and ice. This process will take a little bit longer than your traditional hot brew, somewhere around 8 hours versus 15 minutes. First things first, get a nice size pitcher or mason jar depending on what you have and how much you want to brew. Then you are going to need the tea, you can be sure to get tea specifically designed to be cold brewed, whatever flavor you would like or if you wanted to go with a simple Earl Grey tea. Earl Grey is a classic black tea with hints of citrus undertones, perfect for cold brews, you can use green tea, but it's not a traditional cold brew iced tea. Next, you want to be sure you are using approximately 8 ounces of cold water per teabag. For example, a half-gallon pitcher at 64 ounces will require 8 teabags. After you have your teabags in your pitcher in the appropriate amount of water, you will want to place your pitcher in the fridge for around 8 hours. When you check on your tea in the allotted time, it should have developed some lovely, vibrant color. You can take your teabags out and pour the tea over ice! Add in either sugar, lemon or your favorite sweeteners to taste. If you want to make a stronger flavored iced tea, simply take the amount of water down in the brewing or steeping process, going from 8 ounces of water per teabag to 6 ounces of water per teabag.
