There are no limits to your imagination, you can add summer fruit or a slice of lemon as a garnish.

Cold Brew

If you have experience making Cold Brew coffee, you know what we're talking about. Many people prefer this method of preparation because without the use of heat, fewer tannins are extracted and the result is a milder tea flavor.

Preparation with the Cold Brew method is very simple. Just put a bag of Iced Tea mixture in a carafe of cold water and let it sit in the fridge for 6-12 hours. The longer you let the tea extract, the more intense the flavor. If you want to make a concentrate, you only need to use half the amount of water. You can store the concentrate prepared in this way in a small container in the refrigerator and prepare one portion of iced tea from it as needed.

To keep your iced tea fresh, make sure the carafe has a lid to prevent other odors from the fridge from transferring into the tea. The Kinto Luce carafe is the ideal tool for preparing and storing iced tea with a built-in filter.

You Brew You
