For this recipe, I used an organic tea blend of Chinese white tea, rosebuds, and jasmine pearls - a very high-grade green tea from China's Fujian region. This particular blend is from The Tea Spot and is called Meditative Mind.
The results are amazing. The cold brew tea tastes like honeysuckle.
Cold brewing tea is not an exact science. You have to experiment a little with brewing times and tea quantity. Much of this depends on the type of tea you are brewing. So steep what you love.
Lighter teas like green, white, and oolong will take less time than black tea. Select a tea that you enjoy unsweetened. Cold brew tea is difficult to get the sweetener fully incorporated into the infusion. Flavored teas make a really nice cold brew tea infusion.
