Have you tried a cold steeped tea yet?

Iced Matcha Latte

1/2 to 3/4 tsp of matcha

3/4 cup of milk / soy / your favorite

1 tsp condensed milk / your favorite sweetener

Whisk matcha to a paste using a tbsp of hot water.  Froth milk if possible.  Add condensed milk to the milk as it froths.  Pour matcha in cup with ice, add the milk and top with your favorite spice e.g. nutmeg

Note:  Indians typically 'froth' their milk by using two containers and letting the liquid pour down from a height from one to the other, doing this several times

Herbal Infusions

1 tsp dried herbs or 1 tbsp fresh herbs to 1 cup of boiling water

Steep for 5 minutes

Try rosehips instead of lemon or honey; which will bleach or darken respectively

Consider making a larger batch instead of by the cup only.  Use ingredients like: 

  • 1/4 cup dried raspberry leaves (contains same tannin as tea)
  • 1/2 cup dried chamomile flowers
  • 1/4 cup dried lemon balm, lemon grass or lemon verbena
  • 1/2 cup dried orange peel

Try hibiscus and raspberry leaves together; or lavender and mint.

Spearmint is good for a morning pick me up.

Camomile is good for bedtime.

The only thing stopping you is your imagination!

Cloudy water after making ice tea?

Some argue this is a sign of a high end tea leaf; that the minerals in the water are reacting with the polyphenols.  However, this should happen several hours after steeping. 

If it happens immediately you may have hard water or poor quality tea.  Use a water softener or bottled water and shop at Steepers!

Southern style iced tea

1.5 cups sugar

1oz black tea

Add sugar to a gallon pitcher. Add black tea in a teabag or infuser. Pour half a gallon of boiling water into the pitcher and steep for 5-10 minutes.

Remove and squeeze the teabags if used, stir to help dissolve the sugar.

Top with half a gallon of cold water

Optional: lemons, spearmint

One gallon of iced tea

Pour one quart of boiling water over 1oz teabag or infuser containing 1oz of tea

Steep for 3-5 minutes, or as recommended

Remove tea and add two quarts of cold water

Top with one quart of ice

Optional: fresh fruit, lemons, spearmint, honey

You may find the good quality teas do not need sugar; but if that's not the case add about 1/8 of a cup of sugar to 1 gallon of tea, or 1-2oz. of liquid sugar cane.

For a quart of tea, use 1/4 oz. of tea.
