Iced Tea Recipe Tips:
- Always use premium loose leaf tea instead of supermarket-grade teabags. You will definitely notice a difference in the quality of your iced tea. It just adds more flavor!
- Everyone has their signature drink - pick one of these easy recipes and make it your own iced tea.
- Most tea bags weigh about 2 - 3 grams. That should give you a guide as to how much loose leaf tea to use.
- The leaf in loose tea is larger than the tiny cuts of leaf in a teabag, so you may need to use more loose tea and infuse it a bit longer.
- The small cuts of leaf in tea bags infuse fast and can turn bitter very quickly.
- Anytime you want to add a fruity flavor to your iced tea it tastes so much better when you use your own fresh fruit juice.
- Always brew a strong tea when making iced teas because cold temperatures suppress the sensitivity of taste buds and the sense of sweetness.
- To make a strong brew use more tea leaves not more brewing time.
