How Long to Cold Brew Green Tea
Cold brewing is a great way of making tea while saving both time and money. It’s often assumed that cold brewing only applies to black tea, but it can work just as well with green tea, too! If you’re curious about how long one should cold brew green tea, we’ve outlined the steps below.
- Fill a jug or teapot with 500ml of cold filtered water. This is the optimal ratio for the best cold brew.
- Add 4-5 teaspoons of green tea leaves. Depending on which type of green tea you are using, this step may vary. Consult your tea’s instructions to make sure that you are adding the right amount.
- Cover the jug or teapot, and leave in the fridge for 10-12 hours. Green tea is delicate and loses some of its flavor when brewed too quickly or at a high temperature. That’s why we recommend leaving it for a few hours to cold brew.
- Strain, and enjoy your refreshing cold-brewed tea! And there you have it, an easy way to make a delicious cold-brewed green tea in just a few steps (and a few hours).
Cold brewing is a fast and simple way of making tea, and it’s perfect if you’re looking for a low hassle beverage. It’s also great for those who don’t want to boil a pot of tea, or often forget about it after it’s been boiled. Overall, cold brewing green tea is a great way to get your caffeine and antioxidants, without having to wait too long. Enjoy your cold brew!
