Cold brewed tea is gaining popularity as people look to relax and enjoy their tea from the comfort of their own home. Here’s what you need to know to make your own cold brewed tea:


  • Tea leaves

  1. Combine Tea and Water: Measure 3 tablespoons of loose leaf tea or 6 teabags and add to a jar or teapot.
