Cold Brewed Tea
A refreshing drink that is smooth and not bitter. Perfect for those hot summer days!
Servings 4 servings
- 4 tea bags, cut open and loose tea leaves poured out
- 4 cups filtered room temperature water
Combine loose tea leaves and water in a French press carafe, bottle, or bowl big enough to hold all the liquid.
Cover and store on the counter, or in the fridge, for 8-12 hours. If using a French press carafe, leave the plunger up. The longer you steep the tea, the stronger it will be.
Pour the tea through a few layers of cheesecloth into a bottle. If using a French press carafe, push the plunger down before pouring the tea into the bottle.
Store tea covered in the fridge for about a week. Serve over ice and with a lime wedge or lemon slices.
