A Skeptic’s Review – Cold Tea

If you’ve been with me from the beginning, you probably know that I love tea! (story here)

I love it hot, and in the summer there’s nothing more refreshing to me than a frosty glass of iced tea!

But, I must admit, I’m very fussy about it, and how it’s made. So I was skeptical when I first tried a “cold brew” tea bag that’s advertised as the perfect way to make iced tea in a flash.

Would cold water really allow the tea to brew well?

What if it tasted as bad as powdered mixes for iced tea? Some of those are just terrible!

After making a glass, it looked good . . .

Surprise, surprise! It tasted good too! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve made more since and discovered that very cold water doesn’t brew quite as well as “cool” water does, so my only advice would be to place the tea bag in room temperature water, and then after you remove the tea bag, you can add ice cubes to chill it thoroughly.

Let’s see . . . quick, easy, tasty, and refreshing.

Thumbs up! ๐Ÿ™‚




A Skeptic’s Review – Cold Tea — 8 Comments

  1. I’m a suntea addict, and with the heat index in full sun at about 115 the tea has been great. The rest of us are melting, but we have wonderful tea and licorice after it has been sitting out in the sun. The licorice gets so soft and warm and it smells divine. Chocolate is my favorite and hubs likes strawberry and cherry.

    I have never heard of the cold tea. I will have to look for it at the store since suntea takes awhile.

  2. I haven’t heard about this! My husband is very picky about his tea, so I don’t know if we’ll be trying it, but it seems a heck of a lot easier and more convenient than boiling water in our already hot kitchen!

  3. YUM! That looks really good. I ? Tea, anytime of year, anytime of day, ok pretty much anytime! Ok so yeah I’m addicted! I’m gonna have to look for that in the store.

  4. Thanks for the review.
    My favourite drink is tea, too.
    Hope you all have a wonderful

  5. Hi Crystal! This is somethingl…brewing tea in cool water! I’ve never seen this before. I have to admit I do love the sugary, powered ice tea mix I use…and it’s the store brand! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll have to look for this now! xo Paulette ๐Ÿ˜‰
