Cold Brew Iced Tea


  • 1 tea bag (or 1 teaspoon loose-leaf tea) per 6 to 8 ounces of water, depending on desired strength

Optional add-ins:

  • muddled herbs like mint or basil
  • lemon slices
  • orange slices
  • sweetener of choice


  1. If you’re using tea bags, simply put them in the jar with their tags hanging over the edge.
  2. Fill the jar with water.
  3. And Into the fridge it goes. Steep white or green tea for 6 to 8 hours; steep black or oolong tea for 8 to 12 hours.
  4. Once your time is up, just pull out the tea bags. Discard the tea bags.
  5. Serve tea as is or with any add-ins of your choice.
  6. Tea will keep well, covered and refrigerated, for 3 to 5 days.
