OMG it’s weather for cold tea!
With sunny days like last weekend I drink litres of my own cold tea! You all probably know that I love tea and can drink it all day. On hot sunny days I still want my tea and a cool refreshing drink too. That is why I make my tea cold. I have a few tea’s that work great for cold tea. I’ll explain how to make cold tea on the basis of my thermos bottle.
This pure blend of nuts along with veggies, is one of my sweeter tea’s and it has a hot summer pink colour. This blend contains no caffeine, sugar or any artificial ingredients, pure healthy goodness. Fill the tea filter basket of my loose tea thermos bottle with 2 teaspoons of Nuts 4 Nuts loose tea. Fill up the thermos bottle almost to the top with water and put in the filter basket with the Nuts 4 nuts. Screw the lid on the bottle. Leave the lid a little loose. This way it will cool faster. Set it in the refrigerator for a 3 to 4 hours. If you are in a hurry and want a quick chill you can always use ready chilled water and ice.
Have you ever drank a spicy cold tea? Well I have and it’s great! The lemon grass along with pieces of coconut make this tea very refreshing. The chillie gives it a cheeky kick at the end. You can make this cold tea exactly the same as the Nuts 4 nuts. Put 2 teaspoons of spiced lemon grass in the the filter basket and set in my loose tea thermos bottle. If you prefer not tooooo spicy take out a chillie or two or just let it brew for a shorter time.
My best friend after over indulging hot or cold! With this tea I would recommend a different way of making it as a cold tea. Fill the tea filter basket of my loose tea thermos bottle with 2 teaspoons of Detox loose tea and set it in the thermos bottle. For green tea let the boiled water cool down a bit till it’s +/- 80 degrees. Slowly poor over hot water and let it brew for 5 minutes. Take out the filter basket including the tea. Let it cool down for a while. Then close the bottle and set in the refrigerator.
I used these teas as an example but of course you take any kind of tea and make it a cold tea. It’s a great beverage that is refreshing, healthy and my teas contain no added sugar. Just try it out and let me know what you think. If you make new sorts of cold tea I would love to hear your story.
